A library haul after months | Notes from my Reading

Despite so much going on over here between work, house projects, yard work, and just daily living challenges in this pandemic era, I've been able to squeeze in time to read as well, which I'm thankful for, because the news has been abysmal these past few weeks for various reasons and I'm continually worrying about where humanity is headed, even more so than I did before.

Audio Book Reading Challenge (2010)



Now audio books are something I don't enjoy much. I started listening to them a few months back, and I still much prefer the real books. Sometimes, it's the annoying reading by the narrator, sometimes, its the plenty of details I miss when I get distracted by something else.

This challenge is hosted at Royal Reviews, and runs January 1st through December 31st. To sign-up, click this link.

Update (Jan 22, 2011): Abandoned this challenge.
