I haven’t been feeling well lately so I took Tuesday off to rest because I knew I would be starting my new job today and needed to feel my best. I know it’s not much compared to some people but I’ve already read five books since we’ve been married! I’m proud of myself. Last year I didn’t read anything and I knew that wasn’t how I wanted to continue my life. I can’t imagine a world without the escape that literature provides! I picked up a few books from the bookstore since I get a small employee discount. I’m starting with The House on Mango Street because it’s short and my sister is bringing my copy of The Fault in Our Stars this weekend so I can finally read it. I keep up with my reading on Goodreads. I love that you can add books you want to read to a special shelf. It’s really convenient when I’m out shopping and can’t remember what I had in mind to read next. They have a book challenge where you can set a goal for how many books you want to read in a year. Can you believe one of my friends has read 53 books so far this year?! I think I am going to start a challenge in 2015 with a more modest goal. Twenty-four books would make 2 books a month. I think I could accomplish that task and feel good about it. So check back in a later post for an update on my reading, challenge goals, and a to-read list.
