I read a lot of books, and I want to read more. I prefer non-fiction, specifically the history and biographical genres.
I listen to some audiobooks but normally I read the hard copies. I read about 30 books in 2019, and my goal for 2020 is to read 36. I’ve found that reading more than one book every 1-2 weeks keeps me from absorbing and retaining. I’m reading to learn and grow, not to increase my count.
I want to be able to write reviews and/or summaries of the books I read in 2020. I have several goals for this process:
- To help myself think through what I’ve learned
- To summarize my takeaways
- To provide some biblical perspective on the themes or messages of the book
- To document what I’ve learned so I can come back later and remember
There likely won’t be any set schedule on the frequency of my book summaries. I expect to post these reviews about as often as I read the books, one every 1-2 weeks.
I hope you enjoy these brief write-ups describing what I’ve learned from what I read!
