Smile To Work Down My TBR Pile

I've got way too many TBR books so I'm going to try to get to them, instead of just going for the latest shiny thing.

Most of what I've been reading the past few years has been Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, Mystery, Paranormal Mystery/Romance, and Cookbooks. I do want to try to read more non-fiction this year.

I tend to do a lot re-reading of favorite series prior to reading the latest release, which is how I started out this year.

I am finding, though, that reading actual paper books with their smaller font sizes is more tiring on my eyes now, so it'll be a challenge to work my way through my non-ebook TBR stacks.

RR = re-read

=================

January 2021

1. The Gathering Edge - Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, RR
2. Neogenesis - Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, RR
3. Accepting The Lance - Sharon Lee & Steve Miller, RR
