Something happened on the way toward my read fifty books in a year commitment.
I rediscovered my love of reading. And discovered new genres that I'd been missing out on. I'd like to say the latter was because of the read/watch challenge, but I basically abandoned that one in March or something.
So, for the fifty book challenge, I am currently reading books 40 and 41--one on my Kindle and one hardcopy. That's the other thing I discovered--I like reading "books" again. For the past few years, I've been pretty tied to reading on my Kindle app via my phone. But, now I'm sharing the love.
One of the reasons for that is because I joined a book box club, Once Upon A Book, and KB joined Owlcrate. So, each month we're getting books delivered to us. Seems silly and wasteful to let them just sit there.
The crates are also instrumental for my discovery of new--or previously ignored--genres and authors.
My new favorite subject, I guess, are circus books. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern has been in my top five favorite books since I read it years ago. But, I didn't know that I'd enjoy others so much--like Caravale which KB received via Owlcrate, or The Life She was Given which I heard about through Great Thoughts'Great Readers Facebook group.
Two months and ten books to go. Wish me well.
May your Thursday propel you into a wonderful weekend!
