2022 Reading Wrapup

2022 Reading Wrapup

Happy New Year!!

Have you set your 2023 reading goals yet? I am not sure yet that I want to set a reading goal. I read all the time and for me reading is therapy. I cannot do without it. However, I hope to read more Asian literature this year. That counts as a goal, right?

I read 64 books from 14 countries. I read more fiction which comes as no surprise. I enjoyed audiobooks courtesy of Scribd. Use my link to listen to audiobooks on Scribd for free for 30 days. Try it out. Audiobooks are the future. Don`t be left behind.
