Update: Reading Goals in 2020
In my Reading goals in 2020 post, I outlined, at the time, what I hoped to read in 2020, based on the books I had at that time.

Reading goals in 2020
It has been a good couple of years for myself in the reading department. At the start of 2018 I made a decision to do at least some reading, from an actual book, every weekend. I wasn't able to make every weekend in 2018 because I started a few weeks into January already, but I did manage the rest of the year. With that, I managed to cumulative about 28, depending on how you count bundled stories.

Gees. I guess we're responsible for that.

For all -based : the other day I discovered someone's made an AppImage of the last version of Scrivener to be released for Linux. I've been using it for the last few days, and while a few years old, it works great and the AppImage should ensure it stays stable for years to come.

You should be well read to also write well.

Thus I am starting this post series, named "Strive to be a well read person", in which I will highlight book purchases I make. Each will have an accompanying GoodReads link. Feel free to ad
