This was the first year I really embraced digital library loans. Could never get into reading anything long in a digital format, but having a tablet changes everything. Very lucky for that. 2020 had a lot of low energy/motivation days so I tried to do my best to make the most of a bad situation and read instead of just moping about. When I was younger I would be constantly reading, but somehow got away from it. Hoping to keep up this momentum. For this year I’m already 4.5 books in, so far so good.
