With all the festivity of the holidays and a lot of hosting at our house, I didn’t have much time for reading in the month of December. Now that we’re settling back into our normal routine, I’ve been catching up on some good books. If you didn’t see last week’s post where I shared my selections for the 2017 Reading Challenge, be sure to check it out here.
One of my reasons for taking part in the Reading Challenge is motivation. As much as I love to get lost in a great story, it can be easy to get out of the habit of reading. There are so many demands on my time during the day, and some nights I can barely keep my eyes open long enough to get through a few pages. Plus let’s be honest, sometimes at the end of a long day, Netflix wins the battle for my attention. Having a list of books that I hope to read by the end of the year will hopefully keep me motivated to make time for reading.
