As the year 2020 came, new goals and new year’s resolution start to surface, and some chose to read more. But the question lies on what to read next?
Last week I spent some time with a local community I used to hang out with, and we talked about our goals and new year resolution for 2020.
One of the most common goals everyone—from young adults in their 20s to experienced seniors in their 50s—is to read more. It’s a common New Year’s resolution next to losing weight and eating healthier. But there are two problems.
