Cleaning House and Making Room for the New Year
Like my home, my blog also needed some updating. I have finally taken the time to clean up my sidebar. Notice there are quite a few things missing. Yes, I have decided not to join any challenges this year. I made this decision after realizing that by forcing myself read a book, just to complete a challenge felt like homework. Let's face it. If it feels like homework then it is homework and who wants to do homework in their downtime? Hell no, not me. I don't want that!
With that thought in mind, my New Year's resolution is to ONLY READ BOOKS THAT I AM IN THE MOOD TO READ. Yes, that's right. From here on out, there will be no more reading books that I feel OBLIGATED to read. You heard it here first, folks!
It's so funny to me that something so simple as making that declaration makes me feel like a huge burden has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel like this is going to be the best year ever for my reading and my blog. I am not even going to set a reading goal. I am just going to let the wind carry me where it will. Maybe I will read 100 books, maybe I will read 150. I don't know and I don't care. I'll read what I read and be happy with it.
Cheers! Here's to the new me!
