After I finish #NaBloPoMo (Three.More.Days), the next installment of my 30 Day Challenge Project is to read every day for 30 days. Hopefully will reinstate a habit that I can carry on much longer than the next month. I used to be a voracious reader, but in the past few years, my reading has dropped off considerably due to competing time-sucks. Also, I know reading makes one a better writer, and I very much want to continue to improve my writing.
I picked December for my reading month for several reasons.
- There’s more downtime and I’ll be “on vacation” (ha) for a chunk of the month.
- Social media in December is hard for me (comparison is the thief of joy and all that…) so this will be a good reason to cut back for a few weeks and focus on reading more than scrolling
- Amazon had some killer deals the past few days and I am stocked up (honestly, for several months).
Here are 11 books on my list to start to tackle next month: any must-reads I need to add?
