This Reading Life

     I plan to do more reading in 2021. Over the last few years, life exhausted me, so I found I stopped doing things that feed my soul, which is not the way to go about things. I tend to shut down and zone out, and I want to change that. Unfortunately, I can’t think when I get like that, so I have to make plans and lists that don’t require input; just do. It is incredible how empty I can make my mind.

Here’s my reading list for January 2021:

Simple. The top half is E-Books that I read anywhere. The bottom four are paper books that I read while couch potatoing. (Believe it or not, spell check recognizes those underlined words.) I bore easily, so this gives me multiple sensory experiences, various ways to read for all possible locations, and the ability to go slower and faster depending on the work.

My minimum quantity of reads each month will be a classic work of fiction, a contemporary piece of fiction, a writer’s book, and nonfiction work.

You can find my book reviews at Nessa’s Reading Room. I finished The Bell Jar last week, and I posted my review.

Oh, and you may have noticed that my book, Revena’s Revenge, is at the bottom of the list. Yes, I am reading my book because I will finish revising the damn thing and publish it this year. I swear.


  1. VE here....yes, a blast from the past. I was on my old humor blog and just out of curiosity wanted to see if anyone was still around blogging. Looks like your blog is one of the few still going! Nice...

  2. One thing is for certain during this time of reflection and that is books are such friends of mine. Thanks.
