The more that you read the more things you will know...

Updated: Apr 9

... The more that you learn the more places you'll go. Well, not in 2020! But in these pandemic times I did in fact read and learn much more than in a normal year - 60 books in 2020. Here's the list! I've broken them out into 5 categories: Top Five, Amazing re-reads, Loved it, Liked it, and It was fine. And if I reviewed the book at some point on this blog, I've linked to the post.

There's only one book I really disliked this year. Usually if I don't like something after a while, I just stop reading it. But this one was for book club and it's by an author I've really enjoyed in the past, so I kept going. Sadly, I can't even put it in the category of "It was fine," though I know a lot of other people loved it. After all, "Not every good book is meant for every good reader, just as not every marvelous man is meant for every marvelous woman." - Amos Oz


Now I need to get started on creating my 2021 Reading Challenge list!
