I don’t know if it is because I am busier than I have been in quite some time or because I have a Big Thing coming up that I am focusing or what is going on but I swear to you this year is going by more quickly than any have before. Maybe it is getting older that is making me feel that way. What I do know is that I have continued to read more in 2021 than I ever have before in my life.
Let’s take a trip together back over the last three months of reading and see, well, what there is to see!
For many of us it still feels as if March 2020 is still going. That is when the COVID lockdowns began, social distancing measures were put into place, and the common person began looking at the weekly food shop wondering if it was safe. I for one embraced curbside pickup for everything from bread and milk, cat food from the pet store, and arts and crafts projects from the craft store to keep my child entertained. Maybe once this big pause on our lives lifts we can all mentally move on from March 2020 because as of right now I think that month that turned into year will be burned into our brains forever.
Despite how it feels, I promise you that January – March of 2021 has occurred and with it came a lot of wonderful new books, fun reads, and general joy in the bookish world. I personally have read more books in the first few months of this year than any other months in my reading life and most of them have been good! Let’s take a look back at the 1st quarter of 2021 at my reading here at Literary Weaponry.
