First, before I get started on my first book of 2020, I’m going to outline what I’m doing, how I’m changing. I’m too tired to keep all this up so rather than try to do a complete “review” (or whatever) each and every book I read, I’m going to do a couple of hopefully cogent sentences with a rating and quit there.
I do use the blog for remembering what I’ve read and what I thought of it. But I really don’t need to write pages of plot summary. The reason is that I’m still not completely recovered from my September surgery – it was major stuff. I may never be completely “healed.” I can get as good as I can – that’s it.
Also, I’ll be 72 in a few days and although I shouldn’t compare — one can’t really – I know I could be in better shape.
I find that my tastes have moved over to more nonfiction and less crime and fiction. With so much happening in the world it seems more relevant. My favorite subjects haven’t really changed – history and economics and current events with a tad of light science, math and philosophy thrown in. .
So that’s it folks. Here’s to another great year of great reading. Happy New Year!
