I’ve been a total bookworm my whole life. There are few things I find as relaxing as curling up with a great book and tuning out my surroundings.
When I go through periods where I don’t read very much, I feel less interesting as a person. It’s all too easy to get sucked up in watching TV, reading magazines, listening to podcasts — everything except reading books. So a few years ago, I set a goal for myself of reading at least 52 books per year. I don’t always meet that goal, but I’m competitive even with myself, so it helps for me to have a goal.
Friends are always asking me for book recommendations, and I love sharing what I’m reading, so here’s are book reviews of everything I read this month.
