What a crap year.

When things (the news) are stressful (life changes) I tend to revisit a lot of old favorites. It makes everything seem… normal. So there were a lot of rereads this year, and a lot of escapist sort of reads. Reads to take my mind off the worries of the day.

As usual, didn’t read nearly as much as I would have liked to. Started about a million books, finished a few. Here’s to having a good go at my shelf in the next year!
