    How I Did on My Winter/1st Quarter 2021 Reading Goals

    • Try to keep my books borrowed from the library to 12. Try to keep any other borrowed books to far fewerI’d say I succeeded, I got a Kindle and the limit on that is 5.
    • Join an online book group, I’d like to join The Enchanted Book Club deluxe, maybe in March, depends on what they are readingI didn’t join this one yet but I joined two read alongs.
    • Work through important to reads and long held borrowed books:
      • The Idiot
      • War and Peace
      • Dune? Maybe, if the movie is coming out in September, perhaps I could wait to start until Spring, but knowing me, I might not finish it time, and who knows, they could bump up the movie, since clearly its done if it was supposed to be out LAST September.
      • House of Mirth
      • Looking for Transwonderland. Very good.
      • The Shadow of the Wind. Good in literary merit, morally not so much, decadent.
      • Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts. Hmm.
      • Factfulness
      • Hemingway Didn’t Say That.
      • Wheel of Time
    • I’d like to read one or two more classics besides those listed above from my Classics club list
    • I’d also like to read one or two more books besides those listed above from another country, perhaps another mentioned on A Strong Sense of Place
    • Fun potentials
      • Ethel Lina White mysteries
      • Mercedes Lackey fairytale retellings and fantasy
      • Circe by Madeleine Miller
    • Books to match my current study schedule (History, Logic, Geography, Civics, Christian Apologetics, World Religions). Genealogical reading should be on Ancestry.com, I don’t really need books for that subjects, its mainly to be building my tree.

    I read 20 books this season and bought a Kindle.

    I reread 7 novels

    Read 4 nonfiction books (one about another country) and 1 nonfiction booklet

    I read 1 graphic novel

    I read 7 other new to me fiction books (one set in another country)
