2020 was a funny year for reading, but I suppose it was a funny year in basically every way possible. In my non-pandemic life, I was usually reading two books at a time: one audiobook during my commute, and a paper or ebook during lunch breaks, weekends, and at bedtimes. I’d set my goal to read 52 books during the year with that in mind. Once the pandemic started, I had a really hard time reading much of anything (understandably). However, I got back into the groove and then some once I realized that if I stuck to very light romance novels and a thriller here and there, it was the PERFECT distraction for the most difficult year in memory. Reading remains my escape, my stress relief, my sanity. I’ve felt for a long time that it really doesn’t matter what you’re reading; if you enjoy reading, who cares if you only ever read one genre. Or fast, or slowly, or only on audio, or if you think ebooks are horrible. Reading is reading and it is ALWAYS a good thing.

I’d normally finish this type of post with my reading goals for the new year, and frankly, it’s hard to set any goals for 2021, knowing that the pandemic is likely to get worse before it gets better. I set my goal to read 52 books again, and I really don’t know if that’s reasonable or not… but I’ll just keep picking out books and we’ll see what happens.
