2016 started in the best possible way – with time to read. The trick is giving everybody else books for Christmas and then making sure I set aside a block of time after the company leaves but before I have to go back to work.
This year the stars aligned and I had some uninterrupted reading time during the holidays. Having a fridge full of leftovers helped, as did having a relatively clean house. Aside from a few visits with friends (at their house!) and making sure Team Sheltie got out for their daily walks, I was able to relax in front of the fire with a few new books. I’ll be tracking the books I read again this year and tallying up the numbers every month or so. I read 79 books in 2015 which is up from 65 books in 2014 but nowhere close to my goal of reading two books a week.
However, I got off to a good start this year and that’s encouraging! Here’s what I’m reading this month:
On the Kindle: Find the Good by Heather Lende
At the gym: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
Beside the bed: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
