I never read Barbara Kingsolver before. Her most famous novel about an oppressive Protestant preacher in the Congo sounds soporific. But I’m reading her recent novel Demon Copperhead, and it’s good enough to cancel New Year’s. Really good. Crisis literature type of book.
In 2022, I wrote 10,000 words less and read 20 new books fewer than in 2021. We all know why, so OK. My resolutions for 2023 are to bring the numbers back up and to change my daily routine completely. Not that there’s anything badly wrong with it now but it’s good to experiment.
