Congratulations everyone! We finished the fifth year of 2020!
While I know everything won’t magically get better when the clock hits midnight, it’s nice to think that 2021 is a fresh start. New year, new goals (well, reading goals), and honestly, I’m just a fan of odd numbered years. Maybe because my birthday is literally all odd numbers is why I’m partial to them.
So for once, I didn’t buy any books! I managed to make it through a month without buying a book for myself, even with all the Christmas shopping I did! I did, however, get four books as presents which I’m excited to read all of them. And since it’s tradition for my mom and I to go to the bookstore on New Year’s Day, I’ll probably buy some books tomorrow to start off the year (because books). Even if we don’t end up going, I’ve got my online carts ready to go.
Overall, this was a good month for reading. The Reindeer Readathon definitely helped me pick some books and knock them off my TBR list, and it was fun to participate in! I’m looking forward to doing some other readathons in 2021.
