In an effort to free up some bookshelf space, I’m going to be very picky about the books I’m reading. If they’re not working for me, I’m DNFing – #sorrynotsorry.
There are SO MANY books on my shelf that I somehow didn’t get to, so I really want to highlight some of those reads. (I’m looking at you The Feeding and Care of Ravenously Hungry Girls, Gingerbread, Recursion, The Current, Bowlaway…)
As the new year is almost upon us, I’m going to be doing some evaluation on what worked for me this year, what didn’t, and what I’d like to do differently in 2020. Mostly, things will stay the same (so don’t worry!), but as will everything else, change is good and necessary! Is there anything in particular you would like to see more of, less of, or anything else you would like me to know or be aware of? Please let me know!
