At first glance it looks like I’ve been TERRIBLE about my book fast. However, all of the books that I checked out this week are audiobooks and I am working on slamming through them. You know how I’ve been on this whole “getting my shit back together” thing this year? Well, most recently I decided that it wouldn’t hurt for me to get back to religion a little bit either. I have been indulging myself in some books on good ol’ Wicca and I don’t feel bad about that. For years my spirituality informed my life. I had a deep sense of belonging and connection, faith that all things work out in the end. These things are missing from my life now and I want them back. I’ve been telling myself that I am going back into the boom closet because I forgot something in there, ha ha ha.
I got a lot of reading done last week and that felt pretty good. An audio, a graphic, some nonfiction, and a junior book. Nice, rounded collection. I was about 80 pages into The Poisoned City but had to return it because someone was waiting. I’ve requested it again. It’s a hard read for me. I only get a page or two in and then I have to rage out for a bit.
Currently I have my TBR arranged by length in hopes that I can tick it down quickly. There is a good chance that I will finish Heating & Cooling today and my next book is The Old Man and the Sea.
I’ve been working on organizing my office at home for about a month now. I went through my shelves and I’m working on going through my boxes of books. I’ve managed to get rid of a whole box of books so far. While I work, I find myself longing to read all of these books that I’ve had for years but also to not carry around so much stuff. I can’t wait to get back to a regular reading life, one that feels a little more under control.
