Read numerous new authors. Revisited David Morrell and got into the Spy Genre. Amazon has sent me numerous books this year. Unfortunately, I’m perpetually stuck at page 58 in Game of Thrones. 6 days ago

I’ve finished the book I was reading “the white queen” from Philippa Gregory. I loved it! I like reading Philippa Gregory’s novels, so the next one awaits me already. 2 weeks ago
But since moving to the middle of the city in a new country, life has just been moving too fast for me.
Moving back to my own country though, back to my old profession out in the countryside, so I should be able to make up for 2 years of lost time! 2 weeks ago
My family will think this is a crazy goal because I always have a book in my hand. Or so it seems to them. Actually, I would love the ability to browse for a new book any time I like, even if it’s at 2am. One of my goals is to get this gem:
I’ve never been a fast reader, so it will be a little bit a day for me. First step is to make use of Goodreads.com. I have The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht and One Day I Will Write About This Place: A Memoir by Binyavanga Wainaina to finish. The former is really good, by the way. Haven’t read enough of the latter yet to say much. 3 weeks ago
Found a second-hand English bookshop in Berlin. I’ve already burned through three books in three days. So couple that with a Goodreads account and I have the knowledge and the availability of 60~ odd books to read on my daily commute. 3 weeks ago
Yesterday evening I read instead of watching the TV. It was really nice. Problem is that my partner loves watching television and that it’s so cosy to watch television together. I have to change my own habit again from watching television to reading a book… 4 weeks ago
I used to always have my head in a book. Once I’d consume one it would be straight on to the next one. Often before I’d finish one, I’d be on to the next. I don’t know what’s happened to me the past few years that makes me so unwilling to set side time for the things I really love doing. I’ve started reading again. I’ve read three books in the last three months which is a great start. I’m not going to make this as done yet because I know I can do better than that. 4 weeks ago
And will be starting in on the Doctor is sick by Ray Bradbury. 1 month ago
This is definitely something I have been doing! Again, after not logging in for some time I had forgotten what I wrote.
I’m really pleased to see my goals are actually manifesting. I read regularly now. Books on personal development, articles on the government and corruption; generally non fiction, but I am certainly reading more so this is good! 1 month ago
