Susan | 28 comments So I will start this list out with a funny story. Every year, as soon as the next years topics are listed, I start a list of my planned books for the next ATY. I just grab a notebook and start my list. Then, my list "lives" next to my bed. At the end of 2019, I did just that. then, in July of this year, we got new carpet. Which meant packing up our bedrooms and moving everything out of them. When the carpet was done, I started putting everything back. BUT...I couldn't find my list, ANYWHERE! So, after a week of looking, I decided I had no choice but to look back through the books I had read already this year, try to remember where they fit in the list (because I don't always read in order), and recreate my list. I didn't put all of my planned books on my TBR. :'( So I did my best. Basically, I had a new list. Then last week, I misplaced my new list. GRRRRR.....Miraculously I FOUND my original list. I knew they weren't the same....but I figured WTH. Yesterday, I found the second list! so, I combined them and modified them. So NOW....I am posting this list, because if 2020 keeps going the way it is going.....I will lose the dumb thing again.
