Remember when I set myself a goal to read 36 books in 2012? Well, I’ve sort of hit a speed bump (a speed bump that lasted for about two months) – I haven’t read a whole book in two months! Oops. I blame it on the book New York by Edward Rutherford. I started reading it after we got back from New York, and while it is good, it’s SO long and moves rather slowly. Whenever I find myself stuck in a book like that it’s hard for me to be OK with putting it aside and starting a new one. So I just don’t do anything – I don’t read it and I don’t start a new one.
Last night we went to Value Village to scour their book section for some new-to-us titles. Here’s a little hint if you didn’t already know: Value Village always has an incredible selection of books. Like it’s ridiculous. Whenever we go there for books we always leave with an armful. Last night was no different.
I’m hoping these new-to-me books will kick-start my reading and get me over that speed bump.
What are you reading?
p.s. A very Happy Birthday to my dear friend Erin. Love you, lady. xo.
