Buy 10 Read 2

I am drowning in books. I have always been an avid reader since my teens. It was my way of escaping from the world around me. Today it is no longer an escape but a ways to relax and enjoy some serenity in my hectic life. I suppose it is somewhat still an escape -to all the lovely places I keep reading about.

I belong to Goodreads.com where I log all my books and post a review. I also read reviews from others and have found that if the review is good then the book goes on my TBR (to be read) List. I have over a thousand books on that list. I doubt if I will ever catch up because the more reviews I read the more my list grows.

Better than that I also check Amazon and have a problem with clicking the “buy” button. So I already own books that I have to read. Is this an addiction? Of course I am blessed for the family that keeps giving me Amazon cards so I dont feel that guilty that I am spending too much money on my book buying….at least not my money – just gift money. And that’s what it is for, isn’t it?

So if you are a -read a review and buy a book – type of person, you can catch my reviews here…..at least put them on your TBR list.

Eight of Them

Since retiring I have realized that I have been so busy and have decided that the new year (2019) will push me to find more “me” time. That will include reading more – my passion. I love mysteries and thrillers, love to try to find out “whodunnit”. I even watch those Hallmark stories on TV that have mysteries as a theme.

And so I started putting aside my reading time, plus reading before bedtime which isnt so good because I can’t go to sleep without reading “just one more chapter”…especially if it’s so close to the end of the book.

Today of course is not a good reading day because I put off so many other things I need to do….like laundry, decluttering the house, making Avon deliveries, etc.

I looked back today to see how many books I have read in January and saw that I read 8 of them. They had to be good because each book took only 3 to 5 days to complete. I thank all my friends at Goodreads.com for all the great recommendations.
