I also did a booklist this year and yours and mine are very different, lol. Out of 62 books all but 3 are fiction. 1 of the non-fiction was the marie kondo book - I liked it. It was rather unusual but it did make me want to get up and clean things so I think it serves its purpose well.
Yay! 62 books is awesome. I was one short of hitting my 50 books goal but so it goes. I loved that marie kondo book and it also made me want to get up and do ALL THE THINGS. I donated a few more bags of books straight after. But I would love to put what she actually was teaching into full effect - I have no doubt it would make a difference.
Thanks! Congrats to you too - 49 is impressive too!

Yeah, my mother is the one who bought the book and I realized I had already put it on hold at the library lol. She didn't finish the book, but she randomly decided to fold up her shirts the way that kondo suggests and she has not only kept them that way, but told me recently that she for some reason feels really happy when she sees them all neatly folded in her drawer. So I guess it does work!

I tried going through my clothes and made pretty good headway until my energy got destroyed by all the things that I needed to do in December. I have no idea when I'll have energy again to start it, so I guess that's the main problem for me.
