What did you read?
As some who have read this blog before will know, one of my “projects” is that I have been keeping a running log of the books I have read since 2015.
This list had a slow start, however with the introduction of Audible into my life my numbers got better.
With less travel on the train, the number of books I consumed was less in 2020. However, I still managed to find and read a few gems. 2020 did not beat my 20 book peak of 2019 but it came close with 14.
So what were my 2020 Gems.
|The Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez Locke & Key Series where a real gem, they are a graphic novel but they sucked me in and I really could not put them down.|
|Around the World in 80 Trains by Monisha Rajesh, this was one of the few physical books I read in 2020. It was bought to read on a holiday that never happened. I was really glad. It made me want to take a train adventure.|
|Gipsy Boy by Mikey Walsh was an audiobook, I purchased at the end of 2019 but did not get round to listening to it till November 2020. This is a real gut-punch of a book and quite a hard listen at times.|
|The Year of Living Danishly: Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country by Helen Russell. This was another audiobook from which I really want to take a number of tips from into 2021. Like never stop learning, try to add Hygge to my life it also made me want to try living in another country.|
