Reading Life: May 2019

May was busy busy busy and my reading suffered. But I’m always surprised that I finish anything at all, so I’m still counting two books as win in this season of life. I’m no longer tracking my reading with daily photos, but I started an old school pen-and-paper journal to keep track of what I’m… Continue reading Reading Life: May 2019

Reading Life: April 2019

My reading picked up a bit in April, which felt like an unexpected gift. Vacations no longer mean hours of reading on the beach or during flights, but I’ll take what I can get! I’m no longer tracking my reading with daily photos, but I started an old school pen-and-paper journal to keep track of… Continue reading Reading Life: April 2019

Reading Life: 2018, Including December

I used to dedicate an entire post to the past year of reading, with statistics and graphs and comparisons to previous years of reading… and even though I let that tradition go, I still feel the need to do something with all the data (and photos!) from my year of tracking my daily reading. But… Continue reading Reading Life: 2018, Including December

Cheers to 2019!

Happy New Year… three weeks ago! I didn’t intend to take quite such a long blogging break, but I’ve also decided to cut myself some slack and not apologize for it. Life is finally settling back into routine again, and I’m finding time for hobbies once more; even though blogging is one of the first… Continue reading Cheers to 2019!
