Books, Books, and More Books

Every year, Shawn and I go out for our anniversary. During dinner we discuss our personal and family goals for the next year. Last year it's where we said we'd like to buy our family home by our anniversary the next year. Six months and one day later we were moving in to our home. I also said I'd like to complete a crochet project, from start to finish, and that goal, I didn't achieve.  See, little goals and big goals.

This year, one of my personal goals was to read two books a month. This is a big goal with all of my time wrapped up into housework, the kids, blogging, and vlogging. I'll have you know, upkeep on my blog was another goal this year. I just really like reading, and feel that if I'm reading, and Shawn's reading (He reads a lot, but very late at night usually and I have to get up early in the morning, so I can't do the late nights he does.) then we are setting a better example for the kids.

So far, it's March 24th and since I made the goal at our date night, which was in late-ish January, I've been doing pretty good.

I think, what I'm going to do here on my blog is, every time I finish a book, type up a little something about it. I'm no critic, and I am a typically slow reader, so things won't necessarily be great or in depth, but I do think it's a good idea and way for me to keep track. I will say, there will be some spoilers in these posts, but how can I talk about a book I read without giving away a little bit?

I just started my 6th book of the year. I know some people who read that in a month. I'm not saying my life is any more busy than anyone else's, but I am saying that, as much as I love reading, it doesn't come as high in my priorities for the day as I'd like, and as I said a moment ago, I'm super slow.

Alright, I'm off to get started.
