I managed to knock out 94 books in 2018 – a well rounded number I was happy with when December came to a close.
My reading seasons were a lot like Oreo binges, y’all – I’d gobble down five or six and then not look at an Oreo again for two or three weeks.
You catch my drift.
2018 was also a year of “giving the classics a fair chance.” Instead of remaining biased against them, just because of a few bad eggs, I chose titles randomly off a “100 Books Everyone Should Read” list and rolled with it. I even discovered a few of them were among my favorites for the year.
Favorite Young Adult
Favorite Local Fiction
I’ll leave on this note:
I am forever grateful that I was raised in a household where books were treated with respect, a home that doubled as an educational environment, and gifted with the love of words.
What an amazing blessing to be able to pick up a book and read it.
