Read 20 in 2020

As I work in a secondary school our literacy coordinator has started an initiative to encourage students to read more and she is encouraging staff to also join in with the initiative in order to help with relaxation and to improve staff well being.

I am going to try to join in and read as many as I possibly can although I quite often need a push to pick up a book and read it.

Hoping to completely fill the bookcase below.

Number of books read so far – 15

My 20 in 2020 books

Tuesday 24th November 2020

Today I have started a short book called “Two more sleeps” by Rosie Lewis, hoping to manage to get some of it read during my lunch break today.

Monday 23rd November 2020

Well I have had a little break from reading but last night thought I would try to read a bit more of this when I went to bed, as it was I couldn’t put it down and ending up reading right to the end without even realising the time.

Tuesday 20th October 2020

I hadn’t realised at the time that just a boy was a short story so as per usual these books I hate putting down and just want to keep on reading to find out what was happening, so this was finished in a day. Then I moved onto Cathy Glass’ “Please don’t take my baby”.

Monday 19th October 2020

So today during my break in work I finished Casey Watson’s “The Little Princess” and have now moved onto my next one also a Casey Watson book called “Just a Boy”.

Wednesday 14th October 2020

As I managed to get through yesterday’s book in one night as I find true life stories like these difficult to put down I have started a new one today.

Tuesday 13th October 2020

It’s been a while since I actually managed to get myself past the first few pages of a book but tonight I started and finished ‘Scarlett’s Secret’ by Casey Watson as it was only a short story I actually managed to read it in the one night.

Sunday 23rd August 2020

Today I have finally finished ‘Hurrah for gin’ it feels like I have been reading this forever especially as everything has been so busy with work. Will update the pictures tomorrow.

Friday 12th June 2020

Today I also started reading ‘Hurrah for gin – A reluctant adult’ can’t believe I now have 3 books that I am currently in the middle of.

Tuesday 2nd June 2020

So today as part of the 30 days wild started reading ‘A farmer’s diary: A year in the life at High House Farm’.

Friday 12th May 2020

I can’t believe just how quickly I have read this book but it was fabulous I would recommend it.

Monday 4th May 2020

Wednesday 29th April 2020

I am still struggling to get into ‘Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine’ and I saw this short story so thought would read that. It was a Rosie Lewis book called ‘Helpless’
