Broadly representative of important perspectives and aspects within the profession as well as featuring important voices beyond the professional realm, Library 2020 presents thought-provoking and illuminating visions from many points of view. It is both required reading for library leaders and trustees as well as an ideal supplemental text for LIS classes looking at the future of the profession.

So this is my status for #20by2020

I‘ve read 4, and I‘ve currently put Pachinko in hold. I get easily distracted by new books and library holds arriving

MelissaSue81 Ooh! Lots of award winnder/Nominees. Only ones I have read are the Nickel Boys (loved), Pachinko (loved) The Overstory (liked) and My Sister The serial Killer (was okay, but i don't understand why its shortlisted at all!) (edited) 2mo
megnews I do too. I may end up swiping out a few. Is that cheating? 😂 2mo
AnneCecilie @MelissaSue81 I‘m looking forward to Nickel Boys and The Overstory, maybe next month. I‘m not connecting with Pachinko and I‘ve a strong feeling that it‘s me. I enjoyed My Sister, it was definitely what I needed at the time, but I understand the Longlist questions. (edited) 2mo

AnneCecilie @megnews I want to say no, but it‘s your challenge so you make the rules 😉 2mo
SaturnDoo Ohhh the distractions 😂 I get distracted too and stray way off my beaten path with library book holds, overdrive and hoopla. If I would just quit looking at books and increasing my tbr I might get more read 😐 2mo
KarenUK 😊👍💕 2mo
Cinfhen I already bailed on one and swiped it with another 🤫🤫🤫 @megnews 2mo
megnews @Cinfhen oh great! Now I won‘t feel guilty about it! 2mo
megnews @SaturnDoo I know the feeling!! 2mo
Cinfhen Nope!!! Reading is NEVER about guilt @megnews #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime and #SoFewWeeks 😉 2mo
AnneCecilie @Cinfhen I so agree with you. Reading is supposed to be fun. Then I will do some shifts as well @megnews 2mo
Cinfhen Great @AnneCecilie 💕💕💕 2mo

This is such a great idea, but I‘m terrible at sticking to a tbr.
These are the 20 books I hope to read before the end of the year.

BarbaraBB Impressive list! Lots of Booker 😍 3mo
AnneCecilie @BarbaraBB Thanks, but there are some easier reads there as well. I want to read as many of the Booker books that I can before the shortlist, and the books are either borrowed from the library or bought. 3mo
megnews Great list. Thanks for joining! 3mo
charl08 Good luck! 3mo

Not the best prediction of the usage of Libraries in the next few years in my opinion.
I personally think that they‘ll still be around till the distant future myself.
