Wow – the first month of 2020 is already done! I was feeling super motivated this month and managed to read a lot of books (and save a lot of money). I am hoping to keep this momentum going throughout the year.

I have challenged myself to try to read a book from all 195 countries in the world so I decided to track the stats. Not doing great this month… If you want to check on my progress check out my Reading Around the World page.
Authors I’ve Read Before
This is interesting! I am glad that I am reading books from authors that I’ve never read before but I am glad that I am reading a lot of new authors too.
