I’m always behind on my reading. At any given point in time I’m reading (at least) three books. I read on my Kindle, on my Kindle app on the phone and on the Juggernaut app. Along with these I have random pdfs on my laptop. Also – my bookshelves are overflowing with books ‘I will read next’. Always so much to read and so little time.
A few weeks ago in a moment I was feeling particularly ambitious, I announced to a close friend that I wouldn’t buy any books in 2020. Instead I’m going dive deep into my bookshelves. I’ll make it a point to read books that I own and haven’t gotten around to reading yet. One book a month. Once I’ve read it, I’ll decide whether to keep it or donate it to Blossoms. This should lighten my TBR pile, and ensure that I actually read and don’t just hoard books. I’m also going to look at this as being a way to sift and sort through the thousands of books I’ve accumulated over the years.
I also love a good reading challenge. I feel it adds more depth and variety to my reading. While I love gravitas of something like ‘A Small Town Sea‘, I also relish the light and airy world of Regency Romances replete with the dukes and their unwilling mistresses! So when a fellow blogger (Shalini of Kohl Eyed Me) floated the #readingwithmuffy challenge in a group we’re both a part of, I thought it would be a great way to expand my reading horizons. Plus there’s a prize at the end of it! Which bookworm doesn’t want a prize to read? Below is the challenge. If you can recommend any books for the various categories – please do! I’m always on the lookout for interesting recommendations.
