Hi, guys! Have you made your reading goals for 2020? I have a couple of things I’d like to accomplish. I seem to do well at the “2 books a month rate” and I have particular reason to change it, so I’ll just leave it at that. Of course that doesn’t prevent my TBR to increase at an alarming exponential rate! Sometimes I think I like collecting TBRs than I do actually reading. Am I the only one like this, and what is the reason do you think?
I’ve made out my annual fiction list weeks ago, and some of the highlights I’m hoping to get to are as follows:
It looks like I have a lot of vintage mysteries in store for me!
Then, I have some non-fiction books I really want to get to this year:
My Word of the Year 2020 is ‘DWELL’, so a lot of the books I want to read has to do with being in the moment. Another aspect of that is journaling, which I have made a renewed resolution to do. My journaling life the last few years has felt rather blah. I feel the desire to do things differently, and so I have checked a stack of books out of the library, as well as peruse my own home library, on books pertaining to the subject. Something in line with art journaling is the direction I want to go in. Right now, I’m reading “A Trail Through Leaves: The Journal as a Path to Place,” by Hannah Hinchman and am really enjoying it! I’m also having fun with a cute little coffee table read, “Cosy: The British Art of Comfort,” by Laura Weir.
What will be new on the blog? At this point, I don’t foresee any changes on the horizon. The good news is that I read a lot of books last year (for me, anyway), so there will be more book reviews coming. Since I want to spend more time reading and journaling, I might spend less time blogging so there might be less of other types of posts, such as movie reviews. I do love me a good movie, but I can’t do everything I’d like and some things need paring down.
One thing that has been helping me celebrate the completion of a good book is sharing via goodreads book groups. There are a few games I partake in, and am currently playing my first team challenge reading game. That means, I’d best get off the www and crack open the book on my nightstand! Excuse me!
