My two prophecies for 2019 are:
1. Audiobooks have become an indelible part of my reading life in the past couple of years, and have greatly contributed to the amount of books I have consumed per year. I'm very much enjoying the ride, and discovering more and more great audiobook narrators. I predict that this trend will continue in 2019.
2. Book hoarder that I am, I will likely continue to acquire more books over the course of 2019 than I can possibly read in that same year. And each new book acquired is likely going to bring new pressure on my shelving situation ... not that that is going to stop me from buying them anyway, however.
