Too many years of having too much to do has left me with a habit of only reading 20 or so pages at a time, then feeling the urge to get up and do something else, then sit down again. And of course reading at night just makes me sleepy. With better healthy habits and regular exercise I will have the energy to get more done during the day and have plenty of reading time each week. It's important for me to give reading a prominent place in my weekly activities; after all it is the thing that calms me down, de-stresses me, and fires up my imagination.
Here's my planned reading list for January. It's a mix that seems a perfect introduction to 2017. Do you set reading goals for yourself each year?
|Hawaiians diagnosed with leprosy are forced to live in isolation.|
|A collection of stories about the inhabitants of a small English village.|
|The latest from Shusterman about teens who must play the role of Death.|
|Victorian England and spiritualism.|
|Non-fiction about an American in Paris and her quest for kale.|
|A romance that takes place in Italy. Yes!|
