Details:

Read: So this year was a little different with reading. The pandemic became widespread and, starting in March, I began working from home and sheltering in place (like most people). I also purchased a Kindle in May so I’d have an option for reading library eBooks even if I wasn’t going to work (or anywhere). My reading was pretty similar to last year although I think this year might have included more audiobooks and re-reads.

Bought: I bought a lot more books this year. But I also think I kept more as opposed to giving them away after reading. Which means I’m making better choices with how I buy books.

ARCs: This was very different with BookExpo being cancelled and many publishers working from home and not sending physical ARCs. I think a lot of books will shift to digital ARCs in the future and I may not track the ARCs I receive as closely in these posts since a lot of why I tracked had to do with shelf space.
