Carrie Gelson at There's a Book for That started #MustRead as a way to address our GoodReads lists. This year Leigh Anne Eck at A Day In the Life and I are taking over for her.
Are you on top of your goals? Are you asking yourself, what goals? If you joined up with the #MustReadIn2021 challenge, it's time for the optional checkin to update your progress.
My original goals for this year are posted here. I update my progress on my goals every week and think it helps to keep me on track. Here's where I am at so far this year.
Since the April update I'ver read 15 more books from my #MustReadIn2021 fiction list. This takes me up to 23/25 titles completed. To read more about the books on this list, check here.
The Electric War: Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse, and the Race to Light the World by Mike Winchell
Parts of this were fascinating - other times meh.
I appreciated reading this collection of essays. Davis always stretches my thinking about the inequities in the world.
Reichl's stories of disguising herself to fool restaurateurs are heartbreaking and hilarious.
This brought me hope that, if only we can drum up the political will, we can address the climate crisis.
I was enthralled by this analysis of how we humans have managed to domesticate ourselves.
I've read another 25 picture books from #MustReadPBIn2021. This brings my total to 48 out of the 100 books I planned to read. This is a list curated for their reviews of excellence. They are all 4 or 5 star books.
I might not accomplish this goal. I admit to being sidetracked by the shiny covers and smell of new books. Writing this update sent me over to my local library where I put a hold on at least 10 books from the list. I'm not throwing in the towel just yet.

I was heartbroken to finish up all the Discworld novels. If you are looking for a respite from the real world, these might work for you. Terry Pratchett provides us with a mirror to look at our own world in all it's glorious. Oftentimes he shows us the things that we think we need respite from. The thing is that he does it with such remarkable grace, humour, and tenderness, it makes the real world seem ok again. I am now a serious fan.
