Resolute to Read More in the New Year
If nothing else, we learned to slow down in 2020; we had tons more time at home and books became an important pastime. I mean once you have streamed everything, what is left when it comes to downtime entertainment? A whole bunch of cooking, puzzles, crafts, and games as a family and for me, getting lost in a book. I am grateful for the renewed love for reading.
When the libraries closed during COVID; I took a chance on a couple of celebrity book clubs and bought a few titles. Then I discovered that certain book clubs seemed to have more titles that I thoroughly enjoyed, so I picked up a few more. Then I loved those. Suddenly, I had a few trusted book club lists to choose books from with months and months of featured titles from past years that I could spend the whole of 2021 catching up on.
Now that libraries are beginning to re-open, I am excited to start working through my growing book list!
