No joke, I’ve read a book almost everyday for the past month. 28 books. That is how many I’ve read just in May. there were only three days I didn’t order a book on my Kindle. Then there was that day I bought 3. And read them all that day.
Now keep in mind I work 40 hours a week, have a toddler, and I started writing a new book in addition to editing The Arrangement. So basically I didn’t sleep at all in May. Other things that didn’t happen this month because of my habit: no laundry got folded (cleaned, just not folded), the house never got picked up, I watched almost no TV (good thing), no home-cooked meals for my son and husband, and I didn’t call my mom nearly as much as I should have (sorry Mom!).
So for June I’m going to try and cool it a little on the books. As much as I love being a bookworm and escaping into a good story, I need to remember that there is a world outside my Kindle. Here is my goal for this month: no more than 1 book a week (hold me), and I want to read at least 1 actual physical book with paper and a cover and everything (gasp). Things I hope to accomplish instead of reading: getting my son out into the sunshine more often, more writing, stop ordering take out so much and talk to my mom way more. Still won’t fold laundry though.
