At the start of the year, I set myself the goal of reading 24 books in 2021. This morning, with one third of the year remaining, I hit that goal.
The first few months were a bit slow, but since April, there has only been one month in which I didn’t read four books.
You could probably count on one hand the number of books I finished in the last three years, so I’m really happy with the progress I’ve made this year

Me: “Which of our dogs is more likely to fall in the pond?”
My wife: “Definitely Cooper, but I don’t think even he would do that”

30 seconds later: Cooper decides to go for an unsupervised swim and I have to fish him out while all the other park goers stare.

I’ve sunk more hours into this book than I probably have for any book before. I’ve finally finished it and I must say it was fascinating, and I can only imagine what it would have been like to read when it was first published. It must have been revolutionary.
