January: Just Read

Blogging is a way to escape. A place where you can write what you’re feeling or think the world should know. When I first started this, I was still finding out what I liked, and what worked best for me. Over that time, things have definitely changed. Im constantly learning new things. How to improve what I read, write and live about. For example, I used to goal orientate my months to the EXTREME. This caused me to panic and stress out when I couldn’t meet those goals. This year I decided against that and to just live and learn through the year.

Just Read

For the month of January I decided to go with the theme of “Just Read.” I chose this theme because I haven’t been reading as much as I’ve wanted to. With Nursing school starting, I’m bombarded with textbooks instead. While I am learning from them, I’m not relaxing with them. This month I picked up my book of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and started to read. It’s almost the end of January and the book is more than halfway read. One way I kept up on my reading so far was to try something new and kind of fun. Everyday of the month I would read the amount of pages pertaining to the date. For example, today for January 28th I read 28 pages. It’s a nice and straightforward way of keeping up with something.

What was the last book you read for fun? Any books you would suggest to read?

“The library is inhabited by spirits that come out of the pages at night.”

Isabel Allende

    Being a slow reader, it’s hard to do so for pleasure. Especially post TBI, I’m easily distracted. Currently, I find myself reading and listening to audio books for a novel I will be writing.
    I guess the last book I consumed for pleasure (in audio form) was “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway.

      That’s understandable. Audiobooks are great! I like them to because I can put in my headphones and go on a walk or clean up around the house. It’s been a long time since I’ve read that book, it’s a good read. A quote I remember from it “The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.”

      Congrats on your future endeavor for your novel! 😊
