A warm, cozy latte perfect to set the mood to sit with a good book. Enjoy!
READ BOOK REVIEWS
One way I get to see if a book is worth reading is by the reviews. If there are more bad reviews than good reviews, I won’t give it a try. However, I have read books despite the reviews. So it all depends. I am trying to I can be a bit obsessed with buying books and they sit on my shelf.
When I stumble upon a book that peeks my interest I dive right in. If I am curious about more than one book, I’ll add it to my BOOKLIST (or amazon wishlist) to purchase later. When I receive books as a gift, I add them to the pile. The pile is going down guys, I’m making progress! Depending on the book, I can finish in 3 days or more. I am working on creating a little library, but I need new shelves. Something I’ll add to my amazon wishlist, too.
READ A DAY
I do enjoy reading books. I set a goal to read a little bit everyday and sometimes that little bit turns into half a book by the end of the week. I am more intentional to read every morning before I turn on my laptop to work. Another great way to slow down, enjoy my morning ritual. Reading at night before bed, helps to sleep. I shared my current reading list here.
IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT
If I don’t enjoy a book, I will try to give it a chance. Midway, if I am still disinterested, well, I’ll pass it onto someone who will enjoy it. There are many who don’t have access to books or ebooks. I don’t throw away books, someone can benefit from a good book.
Kindle Unlimited offers free 2 month trial basis. If you enjoy ebooks, this is convenient. Easy to travel and access without lugging around a book. Your own library is just one click away. And you’ll have access to it from any device. I prefer the hard copy. I spend a lot of time looking at a screen for hours everyday. I need to give my eyes some rest. I like to make notes and indentations in some of my books. I love the feel and
smell vintage way of holding a book. I prefer hardcover, instead of paperback. But to save money, I will purchase paperback.
If you are a bookworm like me, play along. I’d love to read it!
