Reading Diary: September 2020

30 books in 30 days (ish)

Last year was the first time I attempted the #30BooksIn30Days challenge and I made it to 22; this time I got to 26!

Books that had been on my nightstand for longer than I care to admit, brand-new books straight from the publisher, books that I’d been eagerly awaiting from the library. Rereads, audio books, book club selections. Fiction, nonfiction, how-tos, and even a screenplay.

I always enjoy a reading challenge and I’m delighted with the way this one went. And, of course, there’s always next year to get to 30!

Hope you’re surviving—or, better yet, thriving—and staying healthy!
