2021 Book Wrap-Up

The pandemic has accomplished a lot: taught people proper hygiene, increased the persons suffering with agoraphobia and claustrophobia, as well as revitalized reading. The publishing industry has definitely benefited from people exploring new and old habits. There are more readers now than probably in the last twenty years. So let’s explore what a year filled with readers was like.

Reviews:

And of course, here is the Art In Your World TikTok. A page that I am, sadly, less than diligent about posting on. But for thoughts on books while I’m reading them, flashbacks to concerts, monthly wrap-ups, for informal opinions, follow the page.

Companies:

Many companies, store fronts, monopolies, and whatever other capitalistic ventures you can think of have also taken to social media to share the newest, the most loved, and most anticipated books with their customers.
