1) I liked most of what I read in 2019, though I didn't finish all of the things I meant to. I hit my goal of 50 books read but there's a *lot* of "currently reading" ones, including some I started in January.
Joining book clubs was a good idea, even when I couldn't finish the books. It introduced me to things I wouldn't have read otherwise that I really enjoyed, and cut past that "but I can't start this new book until I finish the last one!!" bullshit I have. New month, new book!
I can get caught up in imaginary rules and used to feel weirdly guilty about starting a new book till I've finished the last ones. Realizing I can have a long current reading list and just *come back to things* made it a lot easier to keep reading and make it fun again.
My faves are mostly comics and I have way too much to say about them. I'll probably have to do a blog post in early 2020. :)
Top rec is"Die" by Kieron Gillen, though it's not an easy or straight-forward read.
(Question 2: 2020 book goals)
More book club books! Maybe I'll even finish more of them, but no pressure!
I want to read more diverse authors and more non-fiction. I'm aiming for 1 non-fiction book per month. Topics: social justice, communism/socialism, religion.
"Return of the Thief" comes out in August and I am sooooo excited. I don't pre-order things but I'm thinking about it.
One thing I want to add in 2020 is talking more about what I'm reading.
