Happy New Year everyone! 🎉🌟✨❤

Here are the closing lines from

Marmion. My final book of 2019. I reached my goal of 52/52 books about three hours before the turn of midnight. I'm really happy to have reached my goal. 😄😉, I wish you a prosperous 2020! ❤

Excerpt from Marmion by Sir Walter Scott.

Except taken from L'Envoy.
TO THE READER.

A garland for the hero’s crest,
And twined by her he loves the best.
To every lovely lady bright,
What can I wish but faithful knight?
To every faithful lover too,
What can I wish but lady true?
And knowledge to the studious sage;—
And pillow to the head of age.
To thee, dear schoolboy, whom my lay
Has cheated of thy hour of play,
Light task, and merry holiday!
To all, to each, a fair good night,
And pleasing dreams, and slumbers light!

    What's your secret of reading 52 books in a year? I can barely do it

    @Venko I suppose consistency is the best thing but actually I managed my time very badly this year. At one point I was 13 books behind the goal and so I often had to cram read. I will try to be better this year and balance it with everything in my life.
