Monthly Wrap-Up – November 2020

Some exciting stuff happened in November, most exciting of all were the reports of vaccines that have been proven to be effective and could start making the rounds as early as December. Yay for (hopefully) not living under constant fear of straying within six feet of other people …

In less plague-related news, my reading and listening wasn’t too bad. Overall I finished nine titles (five books and four audio books). I think it would have been a little higher but I recently got back into my own writing and have been spending a fair bit of time on that instead of reading other peoples. I spent an extra eighteen hours on audio books this month, yet I read roughly four-hundred pages fewer. So what I lost in one medium I gained in another.

This will be the first year that I reach 100 books finished. It will probably be the only year as well as I cannot imagine ever getting quite so much time stuck indoors as I have this year. I have actually read so many that I think an end of year award post for the most enjoyable books by genre or something there abouts might happen.

  1. The vaccines are such good news, a little light in the dark and they will hopefully roll out sooner rather than later.

    Congrats on going to reach 100 books, I’m nowhere near that, never have been and never will be, this year has killed my reading. Maybe you should aim for 200 books read/listened to next year?! 😉

    1. Ha! I doubt it. The only reason I’m going to hit in between 100 and 110 is because I’ve literally not had a day’s work since March. Lots of long walks has meant lots of audio book time 😂 I’ll be back aiming for 50 or so next year.

      Yea, I hate needles, but I’d be first in line when it gets rolled out to the general population.

  2. The vaccines are great news indeed. Dave and I are very low priority for it though, so might be a while still till we get them (gives me more time to mentally prepare I guess. I can’t handle needles.. I Will pass out and puke. Last year I needed to get stitches in my hand and I told the doc to do it without anesthetic… because somehow the stitches are fine but a needle isn’t).

  3. Welcome to the Serious Readers Club 😉 Even if for just one year. Triple digits are my unofficial goal now but that is because reading and blogging are my only hobby. If I was doing other stuff, I doubt I’d crack the 75 mark on a yearly basis.
