Well, here we are. The beginning of Pandemic Winter 2: The Omicron Story, and the 17th annual Millions Year in Reading. We are grateful to our contributors for sharing their years with us, some of them very difficult years, and to you for returning every December to celebrate the role of books and reading in our lives.
The names of our 2021 contributors will be unveiled throughout the month as entries are published—starting with our traditional opener from Languagehat’s Stephen Dodson later this morning, and ending Dec. 23. Bookmark this post, load up the main page, subscribe to our RSS feed, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to make sure you don’t miss an entry—we’ll run three or four every day.
