Birth Year Reading Of 2020

I love planning my reading around Jane’s themes, especially “Reading Naturally“;  which I miss.  I am here despite unreliable access to WordPress.  My spouse &  I lovingly and excitedly collected abundant books since our childhoods.  The incentive of Jane’s generous, fun rewards, succeeds at getting me to dive into them.

Most difficult:  my precious Mom ascended to Heaven.  I feel fortunate she saw this new year and welcomed it with me, with her sacred Mother’s hugs and kisses.  She knows I love reading, having given me the gift of this love from her, however different our preference in genres.  It will be a balm to the hardest absence in a Daughter’s life.  We pray our son-cat, Conan, is returned to us safely.  My Mom is watching over him and guiding him home to us.  Our open spiritual conversations are powerful and meaningful to me and are the reason we will be all right!

I honoured good old 1972 many times, the year my dear Mom brought me to our world.  Last year, I read four books of 1973, the full year I saw after I was born.  I am bookmarking my inclusion in the fun with this post.  I will choose a year a after I have had a good browse of our well-stocked shelves.

Update September 3, 2020:  I have decided on the year 2011!  This hailed the birth of my dear niece and my parents’ sole human Granddaughter.  The qualifying books I have found at home are these.  When I have read and reviewed them, please follow my links.  Sincerely, Carolyn.

From Warsaw To Winnipeg:  A Tale Of Two Cities”  Stefan A. Carter
Ghosts Of The Titanic”  Julie Lawson
Stories I Only Tell My Friends”  Rob Lowe
The Night Circus”  Erin Morgenstern
A Trick Of The Light”  Louise Penny
Thank You Notes” Jimmy Fallon
Sleight Of Paw” Sofie Kelly
The Cat, The Lady, And The Liar” Leann Sweeney
(9)  “The Haunting” Alan Titchmarsh

Update December 3, 2020:  I finished 5 books!  I draw from literature we have at home, among those I am keen to read now.  Let’s see how many other 2011 novels I indulge in.

December 9, 2020:  I have finished 6 books of 2011!  A fun fact is that 4/9 are Canadian!  Rob Lowe, Jimmy Fallon, Erin Morgenstern, and Leann Sweeney are American.  Alan Titchmarsh is English.

It is Christmas Eve.  I am working on my 9th book from 2011!  I also had a fun realization that a Linda Gillard novel I chose, on-line shopping on Ron’s behalf, is from 2011.  It should arrive this week.  If I receive it later or don’t have time to add it, these 9 books are my firm total.  Merry Christmas, everyone, from Carolyn!

  1. Not sure if you saw my comment on Goodreads, but I wanted to again send my condolences for the loss of your precious mom. Sending positive thoughts and hugs. Also, thinking positively for the return of your kitty.

    I saw the birth year challenge. Now I’m thinking of adding another challenge to my 2020 repertoire. Oy vey!

    • None of my four themes were ever palatable, all the years you posted them? That’s a blow. ;> Where did you leave a message? I don’t see it in my profile’s comments and wouldn’t look at yours, the point being to save comforting condolences at mine.

      Thank you for repeating them, dear Michelle! WordPress is letting me in and I am all too glad of positive thoughts and hugs from you, to endure the loss of my precious Mom, exactly like you say. The return of our precious Conan is important, too and would be a great healing gift: right now. Your friend, Carolyn.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    • Thank you very much, dear Cyndi. I told you by e-mail but have guessed it didn’t reach you. I do not use Goodreads direct-messaging and appreciate so very much, you reaching me via WordPress or e-mail on something so important. Thank you, my friend!
