It’s been a while since I posted anything about my TBR venture. That’s because my intention for tackling my TBR list hasn’t exactly been going to plan.
For one thing, I’ve continued to buy books (for cheap, mind you), some of which I pick up to read right away because of my excitement to read them. The Bookish Life of Nina Hill is my latest example. I heard it recommended on a podcast I listen to, was intrigued by the book’s synopsis (introverted book worm with social issues – was this written about me??), immediately ordered it on Amazon, and started reading it when it came in the mail the next day. I’ve been very much enjoying it, so no shame there.
Another reason is because there are books on my shelves that are higher on my interest level than others. And why not read what I want to read instead of slogging through something I’m not as excited about? So, I have prioritized my TBR list instead of having a number generator do it for me.
But the biggest reason I’m changing things up is because I accepted a job offer this past week that will effectively limit my reading goals come September. It will be a big change that will require a new routine and a new normal. It’s an opportunity I’m grateful for, but my reading life will now have to be scheduled around my full-time hours.
That’s not to say I am giving up on the blog. On the contrary, I’m hoping to add new content regularly regarding what I’ve been reading, as well as some other book-related material. So, stay tuned for that, and I hope you will continue this journey with me.
Let’s get reading!
