Happy New Year everyone! I trust your celebrations led to much happiness, joy, and love for you and yours. I almost forgot it was New Year’s Eve as my sense of time has been totally out-of-whack since covid began. While I may not be able to tell you what day it is with any given accuracy, one thing which hasn’t been affected by the pandemic is my love of reading, and of books.
I took a look at my reading log for 2020 – yes, I AM a nerd – and 80 titles are listed. That averages out to 1 book every 5 days, and what would be a very expensive habit if not for the library. While no one had any answers for what was going on in March or April, by May our library had an online reservation system up and running and I was back in the reading business, using my 2 Read or Not 2 Read page for inspiration.
I can’t say every book I chose was a winner, and in fact a few were such slow slogs it took much longer than my average 5 days to finish. That said, each of the 80 helped me get through the uncertain days of the past year, and my newest ‘9’ have me hopeful for a great start to this next. I hope the same for you. All the best for 2021!
