For my 2024 reading goals, not too bad so far.
  • I am 293 books into my total books (1000) for the year.
  • I have added 23 authors that I had previously not read.
  • I have read 11 non-fiction books out of my goal of 50 for year.
  • I have not DNFed any books so far this year.

So far though, my project to have my spouse take more responsibility for purchasing and managing their ereader and book collection has been a resounding failure. "You're the techie and that is techie work". 5 decades of inertia is hard to overcome but I will keep trying.

I posted this, and within a week the my OTHER parent, who was not the source of the initial medical emergency and 36 day ICU stay, died very suddenly.

Life finally got back on its horse at the end of March and I've finished 5 books since then!

Oh, I'm so sorry. For both the hard and sorrowful march and the loss of your parent. I'm sure you've still got a lot on your hands with your surviving parent with their health issues and perhaps loss of partner. It's rough. My condolences.

Y'all don't need to be sorry. I've been disowned for 20+ years. I only got dragged back as I'm the only adult left in the family to deal with such matters.
