2020 was quite the year. If given the chance to time travel at some point in the future, it’s not one I would revisit. Even still, there were a few good things – and even a few good books and bookish things. I’m not doing my normal year in review (mostly because I didn’t read enough books to pull that off) but I still want to highlight the couple that brought me some joy.

“This is the middle.
Things have had time to get complicated,
messy, really. Nothing is simple anymore…
This is the thick of things.
So much is crowded into the middle—
…too much to name, too much to think about.”
— Billy Collins, Sailing Alone Around the Room
