I’ve always loved to read. Ask my mom. My obsession was so intense that I used to try and read in the dark when I was supposed to be sleeping. Of course, back then, my books of choice were everything The Baby Sitters Club…man those were the days!
Over the years, I’ve evolved in my reading preferences. Now, I love everything from self-help/personal development to suspense to romance to historical fiction…and the list goes on. If my 2019 reading list reveals anything at all, it’s that my book choices don’t follow any real pattern. I just go by what I’m feeling at the time and try to find something that fits my mood and needs (re: toddler development books. HAHA!).
With that being said, let’s talk about 2019. I set a goal back in January to read 12 books over the course of the year, and I’m happy to report that I met it! No more, no less. And while I’m happy with how much and what I read, I know I can do better. That crazy, read-in-the-dark Par is still inside of me wanting to devour books left and right. And she’s making a comeback in 2020.
Soooo…in 2020, I plan to read 20 BOOKS! That’s eight more than this year, but it’s still not a ton. Little by little, people!
And I’m officially a City of Chicago public library card holder, so hopefully the means I’ll be able to access more great books! SO EXCITED!
