Top Ten Tuesday #1

I thought we could start a weekly topic of the week. I got the idea from the Top Ten Tuesday. It is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Updates are now at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This Tuesday's topic is: January 19: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To


You don't have to come up with 10. It can be however many you want to list.

I really should stop buying books this year and just listen to/read the ones I have.

If I made my list longer than 10 these would be on them too.

How many times I've had the same thought, but not the required selfcontrol...

Maybe you can read 3 books a month on the list and then you'll get them done this year.

I have it waiting for me in my audible library

Oh no!
I remember there being a violin in it.

It's harder also when audible gives me credits that expire at the end of the year so I know I have to use them. If there was no expiration date I'd feel less pressure to get something .
