My Life in Books 2019

The Content Reader

I found this tag from Deb Nance at Readerbuzz, who in her turn found it from Jane at Howling Library. It sounds like great fun and it seems to be as much as I can do these days. Deb Nance started from 415 books(! wow). I have to start with 98 books, so maybe a little bit trickier. Let's see.

  1. I haven't read enough to actually pull this off (I was proud to be at 18 for the year!) but this looks like fun!

    1. You don't have to use them all. You can use those that fit to your books. I think 18 books is good for someone who is so busy as you are. You are so gifted and creative with many things in life! In these difficult times, it is good to have a lot of hobbies and interests. I must say I am never short of having anything to do, or are bored during these days of isolation. There is always a project waiting for you.

  2. This was great fun. I got a meme in my email yesterday in which the story of the pandemic was told in book titles. Remarkable.

    1. That sounds like another way to connect books to your daily life. Is it on a web-site?
