lindapanzo's 2022 ROOTS

Redigerat: jan 14, 2023, 3:14 pm

I'm back for 2022 for my 8th year in the ROOTs challenge. I love being able to see books fly off my bookshelves, print or Kindle, though, of course, I do tend to pick up more.

For 2022, I plan to take a broader view of ROOTs, including both print and Kindle books that I own along with Net Galley books on Kindle.

My goal is 84 for 2022, but, with more enthusiasm for reading, which was largely missing in the 2020 pandemic year and improved somewhat during the 2021 pandemic year, returned in full force and I exceeded this total by quite a bit, reading 99 ROOTS

Happy ROOTing in 2022.
