#SixforSunday – Bookish Wins of 2020

This week’s prompt for the #sixforsunday hosted by A Little But Alot is “Bookish Wins of 2020”. I fancied taking part in this one and looking back to my “wins” from last year.

  1. I made a great new set of friends as a result of running #netgalleynovember2020. We now have a group chat on Twitter which led to the formation of the #TsundokuSquad book club, which I am absolutely loving being part of. These women are like gold dust.
  2. I rainbowed my shelves. Not sure “rainbowed” is a real word but you all catch my drift. During my furlough a transformed my boring alphabetically organised shelves into rainbow ones, and I literally couldn’t be happier with them 9 months on.
  3. I increased my following. I know it’s not about numbers but it is nice to see so much more bookish content on all my social media AND have the chance to speak to so many more people about our shared passion, BOOKS!
  4. I read some amazing books which I genuinely had some real trouble squashing down into my top 15 reads. I read 42 five star books and 71 four star books, which I couldn’t be happier with – always nice to be reading books that you enjoy.
  5. I diversified my reading a little bit. I read a couple of genre’s that I normally don’t read that much of and I tried many more authors which I had either not heard of before OR just hadn’t tried their work.
  6. Finally, I read 188 books. 42 more than the previous year, which when you compare to the 2 (yes, 2) that I read the year before that, is incredibly impressive. I am so thankful that I rediscovered reading in enough time to have had this entire community and my book collection as a blanket for when the pandemic hit. I obviously am not sure how I would have coped (and continue to cope) if it wasn’t for escaping into book.

What are you bookish wins for 2020? Drop me a comment and let me know!

  1. I am fascinated by this book meme! I’m not sure my bookish accomplishments in 2020 are terribly impressive.I met my Goodreads challenge of 80 books. I worked on getting my NetGalley review percentage up (that’s still a work in progress!). I would love to make more bookish friends! I started a brand-new book blog, but that’s a 2021 accomplishment.

      1. Three children (who are now all grown up but still at home) means space is at a premium, sadly all my physical books had to go, or are stored in the attic. One day I will have bookshelves….
