This year I prioritized work and working out. I wish reading didn’t suffer, but it did. I should have spent less hours in the evening on Instagram and more time reading. I also listened to more podcasts this year when I would have been listening to books, so that also is why it feels like I didn’t read much this year.
Please tell me in the comments if you’ve read any of these and what you thought of them! Also I’d love to know what books you have on your reading list this year.
I’m going to try to read all the books I already own before I purchase anymore actual books. I have a few digital books to finish and am working through listening to two books so I have enough to keep me busy for a while.
I like to be reading books in all forms — physical books mostly, but I’d rather read than not read and there are times where reading on my phone/iPad is just easier so I always like to have a digital book going. With painting murals and other things I do — walk the dog, clean, drive in traffic — I also like to listen to books. In some cases I’ll listen to a book and then want to read it a year later and it’s a totally different experience.
I divided the 19 books I finished in 2018 into three categories — Great Books; Good/Fine Books; and Books I Couldn’t Finish.
