Carving out time to read a book when you’re a busy mom can be a hard thing to do. Sometimes I just want to turn on the TV and kick my feet up and not have to think for a while.
But the time I dedicate to meaningless shows I could DEFINITELY dedicate to reading, and lately that’s what I’ve been trying to do. Obviously, I am NOT giving up The Bachelorette, Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead, Survivor or…yes I have no shame…Teen Mom. I love that stupid show and I can’t explain it don’t you judge me.
Every month I am reading at least two books. So far I have read “The Light Between Oceans” and I’m working on “Tarzan of the Apes” (which I didn’t think I’d like but I freaking LOVE). After each book, write a review on it! Weather it be on a blog post, Instagram, Facebook or just a good ol’ fashioned GoodReads review, writing is an extension of what you’ve read.
The kicker is each book should be from your local library. A library is an endless see of literature just waiting to be explored. Go to a library, walk through the aisles, close your eyes and smell the inside of a good (preferably well loved) book and read something totally out of the ordinary. Or not. Just read SOMETHING.
Go forth and READ FOR YOUR LIIIIIIIFE!!!!
So I’m going Fiscal year style from July ’16 to July ’17 so by the end of this I’m hoping to have read 24 books 🙂 DO IT
