As some of you know, I bought a Kindle in February...for this devoted page-turning reader, buying an e-book device was an enormous development. But I commute a lot into the city, travel a lot, and carrying books along in an already-huge bag was not doable (or good for my poor back!).
But now...books! At the push of a button! Goodbye, bank account...hello, hours of reading.
I thought I'd share the books I've gotten through this year (about 40 as of June 2018!) and I will continue updating as I see fit. Have you read some of these? Do you want to? Let's talk! Get in touch.
Note: I've tried to keep authors together and/or themes together as much as possible. Apologies if this list isn't perfectly organized--if you have questions, just ask!
We Two: Victoria and Albert, Rulers, Partners, Rivals, by Gillian Gill
Over the summer, I was dragged down by work, writing, and school all at once. I couldn't see through the haze because there were so many things that required my attention and I was in Power On mode 24/7. Even my sleep was full of nightmares about missing deadlines (don't you hate that?). To counter some of the stress, I started making a list (because I'm me) of little victories, of small loves, and tiny things that happened throughout the day that made me happy. It was a little ridiculous, but I was grasping at straws just to get through each minute, let alone a stretch.
The news has been grim lately. Everyone's been down with sickness, and the frigid weather (East Coast, I feel your pain), and the winter blues. My fingers turned purple last week while I was walking home with groceries! I thought I'd share my list. I hope it brightens your day a little bit--I know sometimes even reading it makes my heart feel a smidge lighter.
