I love using Goodreads to track my yearly reading goals! My completed goal of 50 books read is a personal record! I don’t count books I only started, individual chapters for research, random poetry, Bible reading, or baby board books. I do count audiobooks, re-reads, and some children’s story books I read aloud. I prefer paper books to ebooks and audiobooks are lifesavers for listening while working! I own physical copies of almost all my audiobooks.
It was fun to participate in some online reading community! I was a volunteer judge for Realm Awards and a member of 3 book launches. I participated in 2 live book clubs through The Center for Biblical Unity. Here is a breakdown and a few of my recommended favorites. What was your favorite book of 2022?
