Happy new year, friends! I’m pretty excited because I decided that 2022 is the year I finally make a dent in my TBR pile and read my bookshelf. I started off with owning 399 unread paper books and ebooks combined, and I’m determined that by the end of the year I’ll be much, much closer to 300.
The reason I stayed stuck on 400 odd unread books the past two years is that I mainly devoured audiobooks. Audiobooks made up 80% of the books I read, and I also borrowed new ebooks. Not good news for my bookshelves. So, to get into the swing of things and set the tone right, I decided I to join this round of Bout of Books.
Day 1, Jan 3
I started reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab on Jan 3, which means I start on page 317. I also decided to meal prep fo the next few days, in order to focus on reading. For that I allowed myself to borrow and audiobook via Overdrive. I chose Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert because a friend recommended it.
