In addition to my resolutions that I am trying so hard to be successful with in 2015, I am trying to become what one might call, “an avid reader”. Reading in elementary school was required to pass the grade, and I remember loving all the trips to the library- but for some reason with the pace of life I have now entered into I find myself not having even finished one novel this year. One of the problems I think, is that it is difficult to find “good books”. I used to love reading mystery novels, but I just wouldn’t know where to start today. If you have any suggestions, please, comment! I have obtained a library card for my local library and have checked out a series of home decorating books, and I think I will return the remainder of those, pay my late fees, and start a new reading journey sometime tomorrow.
Another reason I am wanting to increase my book time is to get away from the ever present abundance of television and social media. This year I have started by taking away the apps on my phone that I spend the most time on (Facebook, Twitter, etc) and it has been incredible not only how much time I have, but how much healthier I feel as a whole.
Thank you for reading today as I will be tomorrow.
