2021 Literary Escapes Reading Challenge

I’ll be doing this one again. I came closer on the states this year and only missed four. As always, it’s hosted by Lori at Escape with Dollycas–2021 Literary Escapes Challenge.

I’ll keep a list offsite that I’ll share when 2021’s challenge is over, but it’s basically all the US states and as many countries you can read.
