This episode we’re talking about Our Reading Resolutions and Intentions for 2021! We discuss failing our reading resolutions from 2020, reading in a pandemic, reading for fun, reading for work, reading (or not reading) books given to us as gifts, and how we deal with To Read lists. Plus: Matthew’s appalling reading plans for 2021.
