We’re one month into a new year, fellow readers! Has your 2021 TBR Challenge started with a bang or a whimper?
Mine is somewhere in between, lol. I have a research book going that I started last year and a textbook for a class I’m taking, both of which are being read bits at a time. I started a Tudor-era romance early on in the month, but put it down to go do something else and just never wanted to pick it back up again. In all fairness, I don’t think there was anything wrong with the book–I just didn’t have any focus or concentration–but I DNF’d it and took it off my Goodreads Currently Reading shelf so it didn’t feel like something left on my To Do list. Maybe I’ll give it another try in a few months. Maybe it will go in the donate bin and I’ll try a comfort read instead 🙂
I’m interested to see how the rest of the year goes with respect to my reading time, though. I’ve finally landed a new day job so I’ll be back to working full time again soon, and I’ve got at least one book to write this year. I also need to relocate for the new job, and have promised to stay on as Treasurer of Regency Fiction Writers for one more year, so I won’t have a ton of free time. I suppose I’ll be putting my vacation time to good use 😉

Congratulations on the new job and good luck with your move! I still have a few books I started last year that are on my TBR and I just haven’t motivated myself to finish. I’ve read 18 books, mostly rereads – I was on a role with Rachel Gibson comfort reads. I did read one book from my TBR list. Woowoo! I also just donated 25 books to the library. I plan to do more sorting and either swap with paperback swap or donate to the library next week. And I have 3 TBR books on my table ready to go. 🙂
Sounds like you’ve had a good start 🙂 I need to start going through my physical books, too, and donating what I don’t want to take with me when I move.
