2022 was a bad year for me in a lot of ways including reading. I wish I had read more and stared at my phone or the floor less, but it is what it is. Part of that can be attributed to the fact that I have quite a few books that I am not particularly excited about reading - secondhand books because new books are pricey, and there isn't always great selection at the secondhand stores.
I have also switched my book rule from - you have to finish it if you start it to - if you don't like it, get rid of it and move on. And I am much happier for that change. I'd like to say that you might see a fair few self help books on the 2023 list as in perhaps I'll finally get around to reading some of the books I bought during my post-partum days, but realistically, the chances are low.
