Yes, why abandon one love for the others when it comes to languages.

A few more points I consider useful:

7) Should you get stuck in something not enjoyable anymore, just count in the pages so far and let it rot. Don't let it keep you from other books and make you procrastinate.
8)Buy paperbacks or ebooks (if you've got a reader) instead of heavy hardcovers. There's so much reading time in trains, during a lunch break and so on!
9)Audiobooks are awesome!

I'm so curious which languages will be represented the most this time. Will people retake their old SC languages? Or will they mostly go for something new? It's thrilling!

Interesting topic to talk about!

I know it's boring, but I'm going to stick to the same two languages as last time: Hindi and French. But this time I hope to do a lot better with both! Since we can register other languages for the purpose of tracking them, I might add in Ancient Greek, just to see how much I can complete.

I'm aiming for the half-challenge in Portuguese, German, Croatian, Belarusian, and also English, Finnish, Swedish, Spanish. I also still have a lot to read in Italian so I might do the full challenge.
So compared to the previous challenge I'm probably not doing Polish, Romanian and Danish.

If my math is not broken, that is 5 full challenges. Pure inspiration brother!

Also, out of these only German, Swedish, Croatian and Belarusian fit the original B1 or lower criteria. Maybe Spanish too. And of course Croatian and Belarusian are a special case due to being Slavic languages.

Obligatory disclaimer saying this won't be a walk in the park.

Accounting on my current routine, I think I can barely apply to a full French challenge,
half Norwegian challenge and maybe I can push it up to a half Georgian-reading challenge
and a full Chinese-audio challenge (which technically is still a half challenge, I bet).
I really can't take much from a single language each day.
