What an odd year for reading.
I agree with French booksellers – bookshops are an essential service. And I certainly did my bit to keep them in business this year.
I started 2020 with 302 books in the TBR stack and thought that I would hit the 200s for the first time in years. COVID mucked that up. Apart from buying more books (see above), I also read a lot less. I estimate that I will finish the year with 344.
I’m not going to set a goal for 2021. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt this year, it’s that trying to predict anything is a waste of energy… Wait. I will predict that I’ll buy more books. That’s worth sticking to.
How’s your stack looking?
