What I’m Reading in 2021

2020 was a challenge. While my goal has always been reading 52 books a year, I used to read far more than that. As a reviewer, it was almost like a job. The last few years, I’ve been hovering around 57. I think this is going to be my last year chasing a book a week. I’m 55 years old. It’s time to slow down, to really immerse myself in what I’m reading. Review copies, because of COVID, have been few and far between. It’s time to start looking toward solely reading for pleasure again.
