Remember how I said I wanted to read more and watch less in 2013? Well, after an incredibly successful visit to Value Village with the lovely Lisa last week, there's no excuse for not following through. I mean, look at the above titles: Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, 1984, The Shining, Emma... I basically hit the jackpot. Plus, when I got back from Edmonton on Friday, my Kobo e-reader was sitting on my craft table just waiting for me to break it open for a cozy evening of tea drinking and book reading. We haven't cuddled up together yet, but I'm looking forward to doing some of that this week. Does anyone have any suggestions for my first free book?
Pro tip: I love gothic novels, especially classics like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Monk, Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.
So far this year I've only managed to finish H.G. Wells' Invisible Man, which is super short. So, I figure it's time to kick things up a notch. I need to tone down my Seinfeld consumption and ramp up my reading time.
How do you make time for reading?
UPDATE: While I was doing laundry yesterday, I found Seriously, I'm Kidding by Ellen Degeneres in my apartment book exchange, and last night I dove right in. So far it's completely ridiculous and easy to read. After I devour it—I figure that should take all of two days—I'll move on to one of the many books now waiting for me on the shelf. I'm thinking The Shining will come first!
On a totally unrelated note, I also acquired a new phone while I was away and now I have Instagram.
