I read more than twice as many books last year! With my kindle paperwhite, I could read into the night without a light on disturbing my husband or any children who might have joined our bed. I can turn pages with the touch of a finger and therefore read a book using one hand while also nursing a baby. It keeps my spot. It highlights and even stores my favorite points to look back on. This year, I tried to set the e-reader to the side and check out real books from the library, and I just didn't get as much accomplished. Proof is in the pudding so to speak. (Now, the husband has also kindly pointed out that I also didn't have 4 kids last year including a needy infant, so there's that too of course. But still.)
I think for 2018, I'll pull the e-reader back out. I'll get on the public library's wait list for Overdrive books, and I'll ask for Amazon gift cards for gifts. I've got lofty goals! ;)
Here's this year's reads--
.... And an honorable mention, I'm about 1/3 of the way through "Dragonfly in Amber" by Diana Gabaldon, the second in the Outlander series. It's a big book though. I very well might be working on it all of 2018. HAHA!
