What I learned about my reading habits in 2020

  • There were some books I should’ve read as physical books/e-books vs. audiobooks.
  • At least a dozen books had a title that featured a person’s first name.
  • I made sure to include cookbooks in my reading challenge; I am reading them, after all, to learn about the recipes!
  • Because I didn’t have to commute and had more free time, I read more physical copies of books that I thought I was going to.
  • I read four books related to World War II historical fiction. After the fourth book, I was feeling burned out from reading this era of historical fiction.
  • Excluding cookbooks, there were only eight books I reread this year. All other books were read for the first time.

I already started planning what books I’m going to read in 2021. I don’t think I’ll aim to read 100 books this year, but who knows what will happen. Happy reading!
