Last year, I managed to get through ~175 books. I have a full time job, I’m learning to code/tech in my free time, I like to knit (which unfortunately, I don’t have as much time for because I’m learning to code), and I’m an adult with a partner and a couple of teenagers in my life. The only way I managed to get through that many books is because I set my physical books aside for car trip and vacations, etc. and listened to the rest via audio books (through the library, kindle, and audibles). As much as I’d like to be a paper back purist, I just don’t have the time and I’ve had literal years where I’ve been forced to set aside my fun reading for copious amounts of academic texts. At this point in my life, I’m not going to sacrifice my personal enrichment because I’m too busy. The nice thing about my day job is most of the time I can listen to a podcast and or books.
Congrats on your accomplishments.
