Books 2020

2020 was the year I stayed at home reading books. I discovered Libby and signed up using my Singapore National Library Card. I also started reading my flatmate’s books… which were just sitting on a shelf in the living room. It’s amazing what boredom can do, like making me notice what was always there, and challenging me to read outside my genre. My Top 5 are highlighted in bold. Enjoy scrolling!
