I had a great reading month in October.
I have to say that my goal for this year was 70, and my real goal was to have it all read by mid-Dec, because for the last couple of years I've been frantically reading during December, not that that's a bad thing, but it would be nice to be more relaxed so I can also work for a week on my annual review/ goal-setting, etc. since that is in fact, my absolute favourite part of the whole year.
And... I'm killing it!
I'm already on 84 books and we have 6 weeks of the year left.
Strengthsfinder 2.0 - once you take the test and read up on your 5 strengths, that's it really. Nothing else in the book.
The best yes (good but I write on this stuff so not as meaningful for me)
Falling free (also good - I love her heart but I didn't find it earth-shattering. Then again, we live in Africa so things the Americans think are wow are our reality on every street corner)
Run - my first Ann Patchett and one I found very interesting
Foolish mortals - my first Jennifer Johnston. A new (to me) Irish author that I discovered as she was interviewed on my favourite Irish podcast, Roisin Meets... I will definitely read her others!
I mentioned on Instagram that one of my Christmas traditions is to start reading books set at Christmas. A lot of it is intentional but obviously if I don't have any, I will read anything, but I do buy ahead and make sure I have tons of Christmassy books on my Kindle.
One of the things I love to do as Christmas approaches is to read books set at this time of year. I even buy books early and just leave them on my Kindle ready for the season. 🎄 🎄 Well, this is my first Christmas book of the season and I'm loving reading it, while having a cuppa in my Christmas mug 😊 #Christmas2016 #bookstagram #maevebinchy #booksofinstagram #sareaders
So that's what's happening in my reading life.
And ohhhhh, I'm listening to Rob Lowe's memoir, Stories I only tell my friends .... and loving it! In other fabulous news, Alec Baldwin's book will be released in April 2017. You may remember how much I love his voice so I canNOT wait!
Tell me what you're reading right now!
How was your reading in October (if you can even remember!)?
