What I read in 2020

My original goal for 2020 was 40 books. I thought it clever that 20 + 20 = 40 so that was my goal.

Then a pandemic hit and I suddenly was spending a lot more time at home. At the end of the year I ended up reading 52 books.

In 2020 I also set a goal of writing a blog post review of every book I read. It might be January 17th 2021, but I finally finished.

So here you have it folks, these are all the books I read in 2020 – each with their own individual review. I will NOT be doing that this year and I’ll have a post soon on why, but this was a fun writing adventure. It kept me creating in a year that was very hard to be creative (for me anyway) so I’m thankful for that.
