Visited the library after work today to pick up my hold on the Ice Palace, my book for Norway from my reading #aroundtheworld challenge... Left with many more books than expected AND I‘m already in the middle of a big reading slump AND trying to attempt to read one of the big books this year, Priory of the Orange Tree. How am I going to get these read? #libraryhaul #oopsabookhaul
There are 16 weeks left until 2020, and this year my focus was on minority/translated: authors of color, LGBTQIA+ authors, women authors, indigenous authors, authors in translation. I have another 4 books I want to get to for this theme, so I planned them out to stay on schedule. 2020 will be about reading the standards for lit majors, since I can count the # I've already read on one hand 😬 what does everyone have planned for the rest of 2019?

I read a lot of non-fiction (for me) this Spring for a book prize committee that I was part of. Today, I was listening to the most recent All the Books and Liberty‘s co-host this week is a host for Book Riot‘s non-fiction podcast, For Real. This week‘s episode is a recap of the best non-fiction of 2019 so far and Liberty Hardy was a guest host in a quid pro quo. I am excited to find some other titles to add to my nonfiction TBR! #bookriot #forreal
