Wow Maria I love this!! :clap: I honestly can’t even fathom trying to do my year in literature (I’m not clever :lol: )
Without getting political, I do agree with a lot of the items on your list (*cough cough* the ones about 2020, covid and the government.) On a lighter note, I really agree with the Peter Piper’s project, that one was a listening/recording experience worthy of the highest LibriVox record!

Sounds like a good idea, that--I just haven't read any of the right books to fit in there...
