The Ghost Tree

A large, gnarly tree in the foreground is lit by title text, against a dark forest background. The Title reads, "The Ghost Tree"

I used to be able to read entire novels in one sitting. The last time I did that was with Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep. That was 2013.

Since then, my reading had plummeted to almost nil. At one point it took me nearly six months to finish reading Joe Hill’s The Fireman.

This year I decided it was time to get back into reading every single day, even if it’s just one chapter (usually it’s been 3-4 chapters a day.)

Below is the list of books I’ve read since January 1st 2020.

I’m also taking a bit of Joe Hill’s advice – quit books that aren’t doing it for you.

So there’s one book I didn’t finish (has a line through the title and *** after it), and there’s one other I should have quit.

Books with in Italic with an (A) in front are Audio Books, ones with an (n) are novellas. The list, in reverse chronological order:
