Books Mentioned in Another Book

 

Hi Readers! How was your first week of 2021? I know it doesn’t matter what year we are in. It’s just another day. But, if you decided to have a new mindset, then it really makes a difference!


In 2020, I had set up my Reading Challenge, which was to read 52 Books in 52 Weeks. One of the 52 categories included ‘A Book Mentioned in Another Book.’ It was actually quite difficult to find books that were mentioned in other books. Sure, I looked online to see if there were any articles that will help me, but I wasn’t able to find that many. Most of the articles were about book to movie adaptations or books that had bookish story lines.

So, I read 75 books last year & noted down a few books that have referenced other books in them! The only way I found out about this was because I adopted a new mindset last year & decided on that reading challenge. Now this is going to be a fun activity that I am going to continue with, because why not? Check out the short list so far. I promise to keep adding posts to this every once in a while.
