Essential I read 18 books off my list.  Two of which were series (so essential it works out to be about 23-24).  While it wasn’t exactly 40, that I’m happy with my accomplishment.

One thing for sure, a lot of my kindle books are ones I bought in 2013, which I should have read at the time.  As now no surprisingly are now out of date and irrelevant to me.  It serves as a timely reminder that if I buy non-fiction books, I need to read them immediately, not let them gather dust.

Goodreads hasn’t opened up their 2021 reading challenge yet, however, based on the last 9 years of doing these challenge I’ve decided to just aim for 52 books.

I’m actually excited to read the books I have planned for 2021.  It’s time to expand my reading, and get out of my comfort zone and discover new genres and authors.

Now to go get lost in a book.
