As I prepare for 2020 Reading, I could just curl up and begin.  But first…I had to prepare my pages here, and that is a task that does take a while.

For the New Year, I created a page for Bookshelves – 2020, and under this parent page, there is one for Books Purchased in 2020; another for Books Read in 2020; and finally, Review Books – 2020.

Of course, there are stacks of books just waiting, including the First Book of 2020, which I will write about tomorrow on An Interior Journey.

This year will begin the Nonfiction Reading Challenge, hosted by Shelleyrae at Book’d Out.  For that challenge, I already have a pretty good stack to tackle.

One of my goals for the New Year is to fill up my Growing Shelves, since I am starting from scratch after my move.



What are your special tasks for the New Year?  Do you have routines you follow?  Or do you just curl up and read?



  1. I’m looking to setting myself a new reading goal on Goodreads. I do this every year, I don’t always achieve my goal, but it’s still fun to do. Happy New Year to you!

  2. Oh dear I have neglected my blog in terms of being ready for 2020. However I have been working in other areas. I have chosen my word and decided to join Allie Edwards One Word because there are prompts and ideas for keeping a small scrap book taking photos, etc. It was $50 U. S. but I thought for a year it would be fun. How about you?

  3. I don’t know how you keep up with all your blogs, but they all look amazing.

    I love how my blog and my reading keep me busy in retirement. I am so happy I actually started my blog before I retired.

    Good luck with the non-fiction reading challenge.

    I sort of update all year and have no goals at the moment so that probably means I won’t have any. LOL!!

    Have a fantastic week, Laurel.
