How would I rate my reading year?
I didn’t read as many books this year as I did last year, and I’m not sure if I will read another book until January… so, probably, 48 is the number until then. I enjoyed most of the books I read this year. I DNF’d a lot of books too as I was always in the middle of something or going through something, so I just had to put those books away. However, I think 48 is a LOT and I did read a lot of good books.
2020 did change the way I purchase books – with all the ‘events’ that kept happening this year, it has made me purchase books to learn (and teach) stuff as well. With the protests against discriminatory laws, the pandemic, the black lives matter movement, and other major things that have happened this year, I’ve consciously tried to buy (if not read yet) the books so that I can learn a little more.
However, a lot of the time, this year, whenever I wanted to read a book, I ended up watching it’s film adaptation instead. I have watched a lot of them, including Gone Girl, Crazy Rich Asians, and Little Women. It wasn’t a part of my plan (it was, but I wanted to read the books first), I did love them, though.
So, all things considered, I would give this (reading) year a rating of 4/5.
So, how many good books did you read this year? Which one stood out to you the most? Let’s talk!
