Initially, I thought: “I can totally do that.–I’m in!”
And then I realized, I COULD do that IF I counted children’s books. I think I read maybe 20 adult books last year. MAYBE. (And, embarrassing enough, nearly half of those were the Sookie Stackhouse series.)
What’s worse, I read way more often when I was a working mom. Now, that I’m a sahm (wow. I think that was the first time writing that acronym. It felt weird.) I just don’t get that much ‘me’ time. And yes, I counted my 30 minute bus ride (each way) as ‘me’ time.
This year, I want to read more-for myself (and not just textbooks). Really, it’s what I love and it’s what I do best. We’re only 9 days in to the new year so I suppose it’s not to late for a resolution and to join this challenge.
Okay—so it’s not 100 books. But, it’s a start..and maybe the challenge aspect will keep me motived to make some time for myself to do what I love. Plus, I haven’t read Anne Rice’s entire Vampire Cronicles- so there’s that.
Wish me luck. ❤
