I guess I have myself pretty well pegged by now, as I completed exactly the amount of books I set out for myself in 2019, which was 24 books. That was more than I had read in the previous 4 years, so hooray for me! 😀 Do you reach any reading milestones?
I read some great Christian living non-fiction books this year, tried a lot of new-to-me authors, did some rereading and even stepped out into the cozy mystery genre a few times. I also decided to quit my third-party book selling on Amazon, and haven’t been attending as many used book sales. That freed up more space around here for my ever-growing home library. I now have two half shelves of space (but not for long)!
This is the part of the show where I say “This is the part of the show where I answer silly questions with silly titles from silly (or not so silly) books…” I play this every year and it’s a real blast! This year, there’s a few more questions thrown in. I will try not to repeat:
