My latest reading pile – What I’m reading so far in 2019

One of the things that I’ve been saying I am determined to do more of this year is to read, and when I say ‘read’, I mean actual books! Last year in between sleep deprivation and other distractions I managed a measly number, but I find that once I’m back into reading there’s no stopping me, and I find it such an enjoyable and relaxing hobby.

It certainly beats watching mindless drivel on the TV on an evening, or messing around on my phone!

I used to read loads, and have tons of books that we’ve enjoyed on shelves in our living room, and I felt it was time to add a few more. I know many people use kindles now to read on, but in my opinion you can’t beat a ‘proper’ book to hold and flick through. 

My aim this year is to read two books a month, so 24 in 2019. Doable? I’m not sure, but I’m going to give it a good go!

Above are some of the books I’ve either just read or are on my reading pile for the next couple of months- what are you reading right now?

I’d love to hear your recommendations, and also if anyone of you below to a book club, either in ‘real life’ or online somewhere…

      Ooh I might look for that on Facebook, it’s always nice to discuss what you’re reading and makes a solo activity more of a group one. I’m in a what’s app group with some of my mates and most of us read similar if not the same things so we can often discuss there if reading at the same time!
