Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

It was a good reading year. I end the year with no outstanding review copies for 2020, having read what I wanted and more. Plus, I got better about limiting my requests for review copies so that the number I have is actually manageable. I look forward to more diligent and careful reading next year.

See? Pandemics can be good for something!
