What I’ve Been Reading

More reading!  I’m in some sort of weird denial about the fact that the next round-up of books will probably be posted once Baby Sister is here.  Related/unrelated: I need to find more to read.

What I’ve Been Reading

Over the weekend, I returned one book to the library, checked out a few more, and honestly, I don’t know how much reading I have left in me before Baby Sister arrives.  On the other hand, at that point I will be reuniting with the Kindle for iPhone app and maybe I’ll be doing more reading in my up-at-night sleep-deprived state than I am right now.

It’s hard to tell.

What I’ve Been Reading

I got to finish two books on vacation and I just kept reading. I don’t know if this is my way of nesting since I cannot actually nest right now or if it is just what I need mentally right now.

What I’ve Been Reading

I got to do some solid reading over Memorial Day weekend, which was nice.  I spent most of first nap yesterday updating my holds list at the library, so that I can enjoy a few more books on our vacation, which starts Thursday!

What I’ve Been Reading

I can’t say my reading pace is increasing, per se, but at least I’m trying?  I’ll also say that 100% of these books took just ages to read.

What I’ve Been Reading

bookTrue story: this is probably two months of reading because surprise surprise I just have not had the time. I am hoping to pick it up a bit more in the months before Little Critter arrives but who knows.  I probably need to go through my library reserve list to make some updates. If you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

What I’ve Been Reading 

Good news, guys!  I am reading again.  I think the biggest issue between Thanksgiving and year-end is that I just did not have any time for it, really.  Anyway, now I do.I did a final count and in 2016, I read 44 books which is really not too bad, considering I had a baby and all that.  I will confess, I probably don’t remember some of the books that I read during maternity leave (or using the Kindle app on my iPhone) as well as I should, but it all counts.

I don’t have any reading goals for 2017.  I am hoping that as Critter continues to wake just a bit later and I am able to wake just a bit earlier, it will mean a bit more time for books.
