I also read plenty for research related to my work. See, it just all gets very complicated.
I had a couple of different themes to my reading this year. And if I include my research books, what do I do about articles or chapters?
A free book is hard to resist, but the selection does tend to lean toward white authors. On the one hand, my girlfriend is extremely happy to have fewer stacks of books in our apartment.
And "Mount" is really the right word, given that I'm now eight months into that task and it's still at an intimidating size. For me, I managed to finish a fair of books, but am horrifyingly behind in writing them up.
But that said, if any of these titles look interesting to you, please let me know and I'll give you a brief review irsi on my months-old memories! It's common enough that I easily acquire several books a month this way.
After the pandemic set in and quarantine became mandatory, I decided to tackle the massive pile of books that I own but haven't read, also known as Mount TBR. Hey, they're good goals!
My reading goals going forward are about the same as always: continue to diminish Mount TBR, by people of color, by women. On my trip to India late Feb-early MarchI focused on books set in or written by people from the specific cities I visited.
