My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!
But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.
Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.
Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.
I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.
I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.
Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.
As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O
2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.
2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.
Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!
So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).
I’m taking part in a variety of “daily” projects for December. Project Life 365, Capture Your 365, FMS Photo a Day, and one at Trixie Scraps, called “Merry Memories 2013“. I’m also doing “Vlogmas”, which is daily vlogging! I think I might be just a little insane! Yeah, insanity is what is taking me over! WISH ME LUCK!!
The prompt for Merry Memories was “Lists”. I’ve spent the past couple of days in new shirts from my mom, and that inspired this layout for the prompt:
Kit: This is Me by CathyK
Template: Pretty in Green
Font: Are You Serious
I also did it for the Font Challenge at Gingerscraps, so WOO!! Double-duty! I do have a slight obsession with all things Colts. The list? Doesn’t even encompass all of the things that I have. And probably not all that I will get, because I know my mom. She has an addiction to sending me stuff!!
