I tried to keep my challenges for 2020 simple, never dreaming that the year would become anything but simple.
Basically, I had two goals: whittle down my TBRs and Dollycas’s 2020 Alphabet Soup Challenge. I have just completed the author whose name begins with “M,”so I guess I am on track since M is sort of half way through the alphabet. Recently I photographed myself with what remained of several shelves of TBRs (Search Wednesday To-Dos to see the pile), which I had intended to show how terribly many books I had left to read. Most comments on that pile, however, said it was “manageable” and no big deal, so I am encouraged that maybe I’m doing ok on that goal as well!
Another goal I set for 2020 was to read 20 books recommended by other bloggers in 2020, and since I have read ten books, again, I am right on schedule!
I feel so good about being “up to date” on accomplishing my goals that I am going back to a 2019 goal and reading a Book about Books, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. Has anyone else read it? I have just begun, so is it worth investing my valuable reading time in? I am also reading the third book in a series I have enjoyed immensely, Breakfast with Buddha, Lunch with Buddha, and Dinner with Buddha. It has been an enlightening reading experience, has inspired me to download some guided meditation materials, and given me a whole new outlook on how to live one’s life slowly, enjoying being “in the moment” every moment. All this and following a humorous, fun, darned good story. The “action” is picking up in the third book, and I can hardly wait to get back to it.
By the middle of July I will have to get back on the challenge track and re-start the drive to accomplish my 2020 goals. In the meantime, I am enjoying my little “break” from reading for goals and enjoying whatever sendipitous reading experiences come my way.
