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.

A library haul after months...My biggest highlight in books this past week was that the library opened for holds pickup. I'd been checking their website every week to find if next week was going to be the week it opened. So when the notice finally came through last week, I was beyond thrilled. I was also very unsure what books to request from the library since I had gotten very used to reading online. Still, I had a few requested when they called me to schedule a one-hour window for pickup. I did request a ton of books after that though, so I expect a bigger bag this week.

Let the show begin!

After starting grad school in 2008, I got into my biggest reading rut ever lasting a whole year. Part of it has to do with not finding time to read amidst the heavy graduate work load. But the major reason is due to not feeling a desire to read a book during the few free minutes I get each day, but rather to just catch up with lost sleep. Finally having caught up with my reading, I hope to up my read count for the next year. 144 is my target, but anything above 50 would be welcome! And with all the reading I hope to do, there's always a bunch of challenges to immerse myself in. Much as I tell myself not to jump into every challenge I hear of, but well, how do you resist?

So over the next few days, I'll be posting the list of challenges I want to throw my hat in. I do have a couple of books that I plan to finish before the end of this month, but most of my focus will be on setting up my lists for the challenges next year! Whooo! Isn't that the best part of reading challenges? Setting up the lists! :)
