I love to read, but for a while, I let reading slide. In May of last year I decided to change that and make time for one of my favorite pastimes by setting a goal to read 25 books by the end of the year. I ended up reading 30. It’s not a crazy, amazing accomplishment, but it helped to reignite my love of words, energy, and emotion that others take the precious time to get down on paper. This year my goal is 60 books. We’ll see how that goes. If you’d like to find me on GoodReads, here.
