Reading Women Challenge

I thought I had enough challenges, but then I saw this one and decided to add it to the list. I already have a tendency to read mostly books by women, so this one should fall right in with my reading habits.

All books read for this challenge must be by or about women. The spirit of the challenge is to read books that are not written by men.

January 1, 2021: I am adding the 2021 prompts to the list and removing the planned readings for 2020. I was going to compare the two years but then decided that was a nope.
