Picking a Book

The more that you read,
The more things you will know,
The more you learn,
The more places you'll go!

~Dr. Seuss

I love the smell books, the touch and feel in my palms, and the excitement I get from turning the pages. But I also love the ease of use with my Kindle or Scribd apps. One day I hope to read all the books I have loaded on my kindle and scribd apps, plus the numerous hard copies too. Until then, however, I will continue to entice you with my book lists and share snippets from my journey of reading.

Book Reviews

An American Marriage

"Much of life is timing and circumstance." One of my favourite quotes from An American Marriage by Tayari Jones (@tayari).

The Year I Flew Away

Oh to be a child again. The innocence, the bountiful happiness created by the simple things such as dancing carefree in the rain with your friends.

Dear Ijeawele

A book every young girl, and grown women, should read.

Before We Were Yours

'We plan our days, but we don't control them.' I was  flipping the pages like a crazy woman trying to find out what next.

Educated

'It's strange how you give the people you love so much power over you.' This book was a constant reminder of how beliefs and one's upbringing can affect your entire life. How it can either give you energy, or suck the very life out of you.

Girl Wash Your Face

'Every single moment is preparing you for the next.' This book is as insightful as it is good and funny. It's one of those books that makes you re-think a lot of things and she does it in such a way that makes for a light, fun read.

Books I Actually Read In 2020

"You are never alone when lost in the magic of a book."

- Marie Lu 

I read a total of 40 books in 2020. An accomplishment that makes me smile. And oh how wonderful it feels to get lost in the pages of a book and go on an adventure.

My 60 for 2020 Reader's List

 

I know some very avid readers. People who I so want to emulate. When someone tells you they have read/listened to over 200 books in one year, you wonder...'WOW, have I even read 200 books in the last 10 years?' Oh my God!

But I plan to do better. My goal for 2020 is 40...get it...20+20 (LOL that's not why I picked 40 though, I just did a random selection). I know I can do it; the reality though is that I may do more or I may do less, who knows, I'm not limiting myself nor am I pressuring myself into getting to 40. What I must do is ENJOY the journey and learn something new. Don't you agree?

 

Now that I've made that affirmation, take a look at my 60 for 2020 list below. Some very generous persons shared their 2019 reader's list with me and so I included those into my compilation for this year. You can follow them on social media to see what their 2020 books will include as well. Let me know your thoughts on the ones you have already read and if you have one you want to add to the list, no problem. Just leave it in the comments below. As George R. R. Martin once said, 'a reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.' I want to live many lives before I die so I have a lot of living to go do. Enjoy my friends.
