As planned, I took the month of December off from reading. Too many holiday movies and events to enjoy, as well as vacation.

I'm back to my reading habit tomorrow, though, beginning with Alan Moore's "Watchmen."

Another month, another month of not much reading. And in the case of November, no reading. I travelled for a third of the month and then Pokémon Sword and Shield came out, so there you go.

Thankfully I already reached my goal for the year of 26 books, so it's okay. Who knows, I may take a break in December, too.

One measly book this month. So many people told me this book was great, but I found it good at best. Many days I just couldn't get into it. One takeaway: I need to read fiction more often than I have been.

Ultralearning, by Scott Young

Really bad month for reading. Kind of fell out of the habit and then when I got back in, I struggled with a few books. So, only one book this month.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette, by Maria Semple

Another slow month of reading, but some reading is better than nothing. Through August, I'm up to 24 books on the year.
