I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several Scribbles That Matter ones, including the actual Bullet Planner that came out this year). But I have a ring-bound planner, 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 Recollections 6 hole punch 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).
First, I want to say “HOLY CRAP! I read a lot!” Don’t judge me!
Second, a lot of these were SHORT books, so that’s part of it. Part of it is also on slow days when I have certain bosses, I can read while I’m at work. And I read while I’m in waiting rooms. Did a lot of that this month. Got a lot of decent amount of time off this past month as well 😉
So, here’s my list:
The Falcon Tames The Psychic
The Nanny Proposal
When Tinker Met Bell
The Witch Rescues Her Werewolf
The Genie’s Double Trouble
A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
Invasion of the Alien Snatchers: A Nocturne Falls Universe story

The Chef Caters to the Reaper

The Alien Who Fell to Earth
The Princess Protects Her Huntsman

A Dragon Gambles For His Girl
In case you didn’t feel like counting, that’s 26. Twenty-six books were read by me in June!
Now to see how many books I can read in July! I’m thinking not as many! This month is going to be just a little bit more insane that June was! Three appointments for the month are already set. We’re going to Worlds of Fun on Tuesday. Today we’re going to my father-in-law’s (okay, that means I’ll be able to read but still). Monday might be a good reading day. Wednesday is the 4th and I can read but I’ll be doing more walking than anything 😉
A Seaside Christmas by Sherryl Woods My rating: 3 of 5 stars It really was not that good. It was really slow starting and just kept getting slower. It was quite a bit of a disappointment. View all my reviews
