What I Read in January 2021

Buoyed by my success at reading 100 books in 2020, I wanted to start 2021 strong – and I did! 8 books read in January, which puts me exactly on track for my goal. I stalled out a bit when I found that reading nonfiction made me less eager to read at all, but I picked up some light fiction to break it up, and discovered that when I had a book I was eager to read, I made a {Read More}

What I Read in December 2020

I only read seven books in December – a bit less than the pace I was hitting earlier in the year, especially since I had a vacation at the end (though I spent it teaching skiing instead of purely relaxing). But that still means I read 101 books in 2020, which is one more than my goal of reading 100! This is the first year since 2017 that I’ve hit my goal, and I’m hoping I can keep up the {Read More}

What I Read in November 2020

Whoops, totally missed getting this posted sooner! I only read five books in November, but that still puts me well ahead of pace to hit 100 books this year. While many of my goals have changed this year due to COVID19, I’m thrilled that my 100 book goal is one that I am definitely going to hit. 4 stars: Christmas at the Island Hotel, by Jenny Colgan: I hadn’t read the Mure books in a little while, but Jenny Colgan {Read More}

What I Read in October 2020

I read seven books in the month of October – not as much as I was reading at the height of quarantine this spring, but still more than this summer. (I would imagine that I will be reading even more in November and December, as the weather gets colder and I’m less able to hit the trails.) That puts me at 88 books read in 2020, which is six ahead of where I need to be to hit 100 books {Read More}

What I Read in September 2020

I read a bit less in September than in previous months – it was a busy month for me! But I still read five books, which keeps me six books ahead of my goal to read 100 books in 2020. I can’t believe we’re already into the last quarter of 2020; this is going to be a good year of reading, for sure! 4 stars: Beach Read, by Emily Henry: This came highly recommended, and I thought it was good, {Read More}

What I Read in August 2020

I read 12 books in the month of August! That’s a significant step up for me, and I’m really glad my reading game is back on (rather than me just socializing and never taking time to read). I’m currently at 77 books read in 2020, which is 10 ahead of my goal to read 100 by the end of the year. Going to keep this momentum up in September, for sure! 5 stars: Rodham, by Curtis Sittenfeld: I love, love, {Read More}

What I Read in July 2020

Twelve books read in July! COVID has certainly helped me rediscover my love of reading, and I’ve been getting a lot of it in. As of July 31st, I’m at 65 books read in 2020, which is 7 ahead of the pace I need to be on to read 100 books by the end of the year. 5 stars: White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, by Robin J. DiAngelo: I loved this book {Read More}

What I Read in June 2020

Another solid month of reading for me! With starting to see my friends a bit more, it wasn’t quite as high as April and May’s tally of twelve books each, but I still managed to read eight books this month, or two per week. That brings me to 53 books read this year, which is 3 books ahead of where I need to be to hit 100 books in 2020. I think this is the first year I’ve ever been {Read More}

What I Read in May 2020

May was a big month of reading thanks to quarantine – as with April, I read 12 books this month! That puts me 4 books ahead of schedule on my goal of reading 100 books in 2020, which is the first time in several years I’ve been ahead of my goal. Now, the challenge will be to keep up this level of reading (which I truly love) even as I start socializing a bit more. 5 stars: Anna K: A {Read More}

What I Read in April 2020

Quarantine has me spending a lot of time reading! I read 12 books in April, which means I’m now right on track to meet my goal of 100 books for 2020. But if I keep this up, I’ll be ahead of things fairly soon. This is the first time in several years I’ve been ahead for this goal, which feels great! I am loving the opportunity to read more, and hope I can keep this as part of my routine {Read More}
