I don’t really like to impose restrictions on my reading. That way lies the spectre of reading block! A good balance between own books and review copies/blog tours is essential, and I was happy with how that went last year.
The key statistic from 2022 was looking at where my books came from. For the first time, books from my TBR piles outweighed new acquisitions (30% vs 27%). Although it is fair to comment that I purchased far more than the 36 books I read that were bought in 2022 – so in effect I’m always pre-loading my TBR for the next year. Ahem!
My main aim is to keep that TBR number up, to better the proportions if I can (and maybe buy fewer new books too!). One easy way of supporting that is to only read from the TBR piles for any readalongs and challenges I join in on. All my reading for #NordicFINDS this year is from my TBR shelves for starters.
That’s all I’m going to say on the subject! I’ve got too much wonderful reading to do!
