My Reader Goals 2021 🎯

Happy New Year!

Every year I like to list books I plan on reading. It's a starting point, a list that I look at every month to pick what to read next. It's not meant to be a “must read” list, just suggestions for my future me.

This year I'm not being too ambitious. I want to slow down and savour the moment. No big goals really, just sailing in cruise control.

I mainly want to keep on reading the books I already own, so I will try to pick from the following list:
