I have been reading so much lately. It is one of my most favourite things to do. I have illustrated above all the books I read in January. I’ll try and do this at the end of each month.
I have challenged myself to read fifty books this year and I have read nine so far.
The Goodreads app is a good way to record what you’re reading and what you want to read. I also make lots of handwritten lists of books to read.
1. Life Lessons From The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. My friend V leant me last year the book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’. It actually inspired my life, so I picked up this book just as a refresher. It was helpful. I agree with all the lessons.
2. Stardust. My lecturer Sue leant me this book last year. Not something I would normally read, however surprisingly I really enjoyed the story. I also realised I like Neil Gaiman as a writer.
3. Northanger Abbey. My friend Elena let me borrow this book about three years ago. I tried reading it back then and I couldn’t. It was just slow and boring. I thought it was about time I read it and gave it back to her. I struggled with it to begin with and then toward the end it just got so good. I started getting into the story and really understanding the character. Funnily enough I rate this book.
