Dear Reader, I should add to my New Years Resolutions a plan to keep up with my GoodReads account. Because this year, I read quite a few books, and I should probably organize them…somehow. I read 34 books this year, which is WAY UP from the 7 I read in 2015, and that’s something to be proud of. I don’t have dates for when I read these books, but I started reading this year around April, and read pretty consistently after that. So let’s get into it:
I only started reading books again in April, and so far this year, I’ve read 27. Since we’ve got about 4 months left of the year, I figured now was a good time to break down what I’ve been reading, why, and what’s next.
I recently read (well, listened to) The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Mari Kondo. People across the internet have reviewed this book, and I am not going to sit here and review the good or bad things. It’s been said, I don’t want to say it again. There have even been NY Times think pieces about her new line of organizing items from Target, which talked about the hypocrisy of selling organizing bins when the book advocates for using basic shoe boxes to organize.
