Update 3/30/22:
I’ve always put pressure on myself to write as comprehensive a review as possible of every book I read, especially those sent by other BCers. To be honest, it’s not an activity I enjoy very much, and consequently I end up hanging on to books too long after reading them (and by that time it’s sometimes difficult to remember details anyway!)
In an effort to SIMPLIFY all aspects of my life, I will no longer force myself to do actual reviews if not moved to do so.
This should help with this year’s goal of moving along as many “registered by others” books as possible. 😊
Lack of a review doesn’t mean that a book you’ve sent me hasn’t been read and enjoyed!

Languages have always been my passion, which is actually pretty strange: being shy, I often have difficulty carrying on a normal conversation even in English. :-)
