On Books, Writing, Editing, and More

I read fewer books this year than in the pandemic years. In 2020, I read 55 books and in 2021, I had read 32 books until July. I have hyperlinked some of the books I read this year to the reviews I’ve written of them for your reference. How has your reading been during the pandemic and post-pandemic?
