I debated for a month if I wanted to do this post. I pick the books I want to read for My Reads based on topic, not by when I read them. I started keeping a reading journal when I got serious about becoming a writer.
I started my website in 2016. My 1st My Reads review was FANDANGO STEW. It was the 91st picture book I put in my reading journal. Now I’m up to 314 picture books. My second review was THE EXTINCTS, the 48th chapter/middle grade book I read. I just finished my 118th book. I’ve read 432 books altogether. That’s a lot of reading!
This post won’t tell you what I’ve read in the past. It will only show you what I’m reading now. I’m sharing these books as screenshots from my local library. I only read new books. It’s how I stay current with what publishers are looking for. So, no reviews or opinions. Just screenshots. Here’s my first set of library books for 2021.

When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
