One of the questions that Kevin and I talked about in our podcast, (coming tomorrow), was how do you deal with stress? One of my answers was, I physically remove myself from the situation, whether that’s hiding in the bathroom for a few moments to deep breathe or take a walk around the hospital because …. people. Ugh.
But another big thing for me is reading. I read to escape my reality, to temporarily shove my thoughts and problems into a closet allowing more space and energy for my imagination to freely roam.
If I could read for a living, I would, in a heartbeat. If anyone knows of any book reviewer jobs let me know! (I may be looking for a new job, very, very soon).
Also – IT’S JUNE, YA’LL! Twenty-twenty one is nearly halfway over!
You can tell which book I’m currently reading by the Goodreads widget in the sidebar.
I’m all about Kindle e-books. I’m a hard core e-book reader. I haven’t read an actual book in quite a long time and I find that when I hold an actual book, it feels large and clunky. I much prefer my Kindle e-reader than an actual book. With that said, I get all of my books from Kindle Unlimited – I rarely, if ever, spend money on a book – it all goes into the $10 dollars a month I pay for Kindle Unlimited.
So, if you’re interested in reading lesser known authors and want to save a ton of money in books, join me!
I rarely read anything lower than a four-star review on Goodreads – I’ve come to trust the reviews of Goodreads readers. I stopped reading for a long time simply because every book I read was stupid, or disappointing and ultimately, a waste of time. (I feel the same with movies – haven’t watched movies, or TV, in about a year). I’ve had great luck sticking to this philosophy and most of the books I read are pretty good.
You can see my book ratings on my Goodreads account.
I have currently read 22 books out of 55.
