|this is what today has been like.|
a few posts ago i talked about challenging myself to read 12 books a year. i did really well in 2017 and 2018. but 2019 was a weird one. i started SO MANY books but i just never finished them. i spent so much money on books that i never finished.
yesterday when i was driving to work i thought maybe i should use the library more often. this way i save a bit of money and #NoRagrets if i dont finish a book. i KNOW i had library cards for TWO cities (perks of working and living in different cities, i guess) - i just don't know where i put them. i figured i threw them out or moved them around during one of my purges. so i just started researching how to get new ones.
|here's some of the dead trees i decided to keep through multiple purges.|
aside: it's an AWESOME audiobook. the narration is on point.
i think one of the reasons why i don't usually reach for audiobooks is that they are quite pricey. also, i'm quite picky with the type of narration i can stick with (i learned this as i sampled many many podcasts over the last year). i've thought about Audible before and always decided against it cause, even though it might be a bit cheaper than buying audiobooks outright, i definitely DO NOT need another subscription.
i have a chair that i used to pile my clothes on instead of actually putting them away. i've been working really hard to remove that habit of mine so i can actually use the stupid chair. it's a great chair! i feel like i'm IN it and not just on it, you know? i used to get some serious reading done on this chair. but today. i was listening to a book while i was making breakfast, cleaning, doing laundry, and taking that picture above.
since it's super new, i'm quite excited about it. but maybe i've been sleeping on a gold mine. maybe this will be the year that i can get through more than one book a month!
do you have a preferred method of "reading"?
what are your favourite audiobooks?
do you have your version of "the chair"?
