It’s been over a year since I last posted on Books on the Table. Why? I guess I’ll blame it on the pandemic. During those long months at home, I kept hearing, from friends and participants in Zoom book clubs that I moderated, that reading, specifically concentrating on a book, was challenging. I didn’t experience that difficulty — I’ve never read more — but I did find myself paralyzed when it came to writing. I’d sit down to write a book review, and no words would come.
I’m not ready to “retire” from Books on the Table, which has been a rewarding, creative outlet for me for nearly eight years, and I will continue to update my reading list (Read in 2021) and to post every now and then. However, I’ll post regularly on my new Instagram page (Talking Books with Alice & Ann) — please check it out and follow us! My partner at Between the Covers Book Discussions, Alice Moody, and I will both provide book recommendations. We hope you’ll comment and let us know what you’re reading.
Here are some highlights of my reading since March 2020:
I’d love to know what you’ve been reading!
