Most read author: hard to tell because I spent most of the month reading books for my missing US states and I had a no repeats rule and the only author with more than one book on the list was Rainbow Rowell (a novella for Nebraska and a novella in a fairytale retellings series) and neither were long. On pages probably Nora Roberts because Black Hills was loooooooong
Books bought: still not counting
Books read in 2020: 393
Books on the Goodreads to-read shelf (I don’t have copies of all of these!): 589
So here we are. The end of another year. My books total is ever so slightly down on last year (393 to 402) which considering I didn’t have my usual summer holiday sunlounger reading time (and I’ve been commuting around 50% less since March) is actually quite impressive. As usual I’ll probably tweak the format of my stats when I get to the end of January, but I haven’t figured out how yet, so that can be a suprise in a month’s time. And I’ve got a few more look back/lookahead posts coming, but in the meantime, Happy New Year and may 2021 be a better year.
Bonus picture: Here’s the view from our attic at midnight, as seemingly people all over town unloaded a tonne of fireworks into the sky to celebrate the end of 2020.
