And 2020 is officially over.
I love to start the new year with a bang. Here's my strategy: I start a stack of books during the last weeks of the old year, and then I finish them and review them on the first day of the new year. I finished fifteen books on January 1st. Starting with a bang.
I've never done this before, and I don't know how it will turn out, but I decided to sign up for several reading challenges this year: Back to the Classics Challenge. Nonfiction Reader Challenge. Japanese Literature Challenge. Books in Translation Reading Challenge. Diversity Reading Challenge. Comment 4 Comment Challenge. For more information about these, take a look here.
Are you doing any of these challenges this year? Are you doing any other challenges?
My dad celebrates his 94th birthday on January 3rd. We, of course, won't be gathering for his birthday this year, but it's fun to remember his 90th birthday when he had to blow out all 90 of the candles on his cake.
