Right now, I'm drawing a blank altogether after finishing The Cottage, and have no plans for another fairy tale. But, you never know, something might happen. I do have a fantastic beginning for another one. All I gotta do is come up with some more. It could happen!(less)

Books of The Year 2020

 



I read 26 books in 2020. Far less than I like, but more than I thought I'd get through in such a crazy year. Global pandemic, lockdown, pulling kids from public school, going back to school for a certificate myself, returning to full-time work after 7 years of working from home. None of these things were conducive to reading. And yet, I beat my goal of 24 books for the year. Barely.
