Keeping a book list in the back of my planner has helped tremendously with my reading the last few years. I create the list in January, and then add or change it as the year progresses. If I read only a handful of books, I’ll be happy — but somehow, making a list and knowing what’s going to come next (and being able to get a hold of them promptly) means reading many more than that! Also, it’s awfully fun to remember what I’ve read, and the score I gave them on a scale of 1-10.
So, here’s what I read in 2020:
The Measure of Success (completed), 4/10
A Girl of the Limberlost, 8/10
In the Garden of Beasts, 9/10
In My Father’s House, 8/10
The Grand Escape, 8/10
The Green Glass Sea, 10/10
We Were the Lucky Ones, 10/10
The Book Thief, 8/10
Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling, in progress
What should I read this year? Let me know your recommendations!
