“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

I joined the Goodreads Challenge last year and set my goal at 30 books. I was pleased to end the year having read 34. Many bloggers have listed the books they read in 2019, so I decided to do the same. I’ve included links to Goodreads where I’ve left a review for most of them. There may be some you´d like to read.

In 2019 I read many great books and a good variety. It´s hard to say which was my favorite but the top three would be, Becoming, Baggage and The Bonesetter´s Daughter. It´s just a coincidence they all start with B.

So many books, so little time

My goal for next year is 40. I will not live long enough to complete my TBR pile but I sure want to make a dent in it in 2020. Wish me luck.

Happy reading to all of you!!
