Books I Want to Read Before the End of 2020

My reading went off the rails in the second half of 2020 and I currently find myself in the middle of 30 books at the same time. One I’ve been reading since January. One I’ve been reading since July. And the rest were started at some point from August on (probably). There are also 12 Christmas themed books in my advent calendar this year that I will be trying to read in December (more about those in a future post).

Altogether I have 42 books I am hoping to finish in November and December. My spreadsheet says I’ll need to read 300 pages a day to finish on time. That is extremely unlikely, but I’ll see what I can do.  Because there are so many I won’t include covers or blurbs from Goodreads, but the title of books I mention is always a link to the Goodreads listing for it if you want more information.

These are the books I’ve already started.

It’s not super important to have all of these finished by the end of the year, but I do love when I can start a new year with an empty slate in terms of reading. I’ll be working on these and hopefully at least a few Christmas themed books until 2020 is over. What are you hoping to read the rest of this year? How do you feel about being in the middle of a book when a new year begins?

  1. Right now still in the middle of Little Women, but will probably be finished either today or tomorrow.

    After that- have no clue because it will be too early to start the Christmas books

    Once the Christmas Holidays begin, I will start reading A Christmas Treasury, which has classic Christmas stories and poems.

  2. This is an inspiring post. I am reading a few pages from Ratna Navaratanam’s Manichavasagar and Yogendra Singh’s treatise on Vaishnava bhakti tradition. I picked up Saavitri by Sri Aurobindo but couldn’t read even a single page so far. I read some pages from a book on Vedic hymns recently. I wanted to read a book on birds today in Sunshine: probably, I will do it tomorrow if Sun shines!
