January- April 2020 Reading Log


Many people have asked, “What happened to your book log in 2020?” My answer: Life.  The start of 2020 has been hectic – then throw in a pandemic for good measure.  I needed to create a little margin in my life and the book log was an easy thing to lay aside.

Yet, I didn’t abandon reading and I don’t want to completely abandon the log.  Here it is for January, February, March, and April in an abbreviated format.  For the first four month of 2020 I read 31 books.
