In many ways, 2020 was an onslaught of nightmare events surrounding the pandemic, social injustice, the burning planet, and a presidential election we're somehow still talking about, to name just a few. For those who could focus on reading, books were a means of escape, hope, or even empowerment. For others, there was a pandemic reading slump. And the publishing industry as a whole shifted, too — from the transition to virtual events to the devastating bookstore closures to the racial reckoning and consequent highlighting of antiracism reading guides to the expanding influence of publishers that already dominate the market. (See: Penguin Random House's purchase of Simon & Schuster.)

We want to know how your reading habits changed this year. What did you love or hate? How did books get you through 2020? To participate, submit your responses here. You may be contacted by a reporter for follow-up questions depending on the answers given.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
