Amazon might just know me a little too well! This was an ad that popped up in my Facebook feed
Well, okay, then
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) “The Bullet Journal Method” 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 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.
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).
What are YOUR reading goals?
Today is Day 01 of Writing Daily.
Ugh! I requested today off so that I could get ALL the writing done.
Instead it’s almost noon and I have 38 words typed. I have more words put into this blog post than I do with my novel. Not a great start to #NaNoWriMo 2018, right?
First, let me say that I missed yesterday’s vlog and I’m going to miss today’s. I’m sick and no one, including myself, wants to see that. One day, though, I’ll vlog with the new webcam! We’ll see how that goes!
Now, Spotify has some great stats for how you spend your listening year. Not surprising, my #1 song for 2017 is the same as the #1 song for 2016: My House by Flo Rida
Wow. So, it looks like I listen to a LOT of artists, right? And a variety of songs 🙂
Work and sickness (headaches) got me behind on my scrapping, but I’m going to catch back up!
Pics are a few years old (date is listed). I love the title work that I did though!
