I’ve been thinking about next year’s Read Harder and I don’t know if I’m going to sign up. I’ll decide after I see the list, but so much of my reading this year felt…joyless. When I was reading books not on the list, there was always this unpleasant feeling that I wasn’t doing what I “should,” and I forced myself to finish several things I wouldn’t have otherwise. Life is too short for that nonsense. I have shelves full of books here in my house, and a neverending flood of good library finds, not to MENtion how easy it is to just pop by Moon Palace on my way home from Better Futures every week. I’m going to find a way to keep stretching outside of my comfort zone while not wasting so much time.
