So hey, it turns out having COVID is really good for working on one’s literary goals. I realized when trying to reconcile my list with goodread’s that I never reported reading The Demon’s Brood: A History of the Plantagenet Dynasty here, which was technically a TBR since I bought in March for Read of England, and then never got to it. That was a September read!
