2021 Reading Report

I'm going back through all my notes and trying to reconstruct the list of books I read this past year (I've got to do better about keeping the list current as I go -- that's one of my 2022 goals).

First off, I read the entire Bible through again in the New Living Translation, but this year I used the more leisurely Bible-in-a-year plan instead of the accelerate 90-day schedule (which I found very hard to keep up with in 2020, as it took me closer to 120 days).

Now, in no particular order, here's 2021's reading list:
