I got some of the books. They are so gorgeous. Look at these colors.

And the texture of them. See there is a reason for buying physical books. 😍

I got a few messages about "I want to read more" and "I'm terrible about reading at the moment".

And I was the same, until like last week. And probably will be again. What got me going this time was these two YouTube videos (I also recommend the creators):

"How to Read More", by the Artisan Geek

And "How to Read More | An Honest Answer [CC]", by Bookish Realm

Bookish Realm also did this Audiobooking 101:

While I didn't agree with all the ways she does it, because I know my mind can't listen to higher speed, and I actually do listen to classics on free audiobook, she still does a great job explaining where you can find time and space to read.

I hope it helps. <3

@maloki Hell yeah! Interested to hear your thoughts on that Akala one, I only learned he had a book from your previous posts about it

@Shrigglepuss I think I'm lending it to Cosmo first. (I think it was that one).

So much good stuff to read, and yeah I'm reading more than I have in a while.

@maloki I should get a wriggle on, I'm reading way less lately if anything =(

@maloki girl, woman, other is on my bedside table right now - i've been so terrible in my reading habits, haven't finished a book in about a year, but Mairéad read it recently and said i should give it a go so i'm gonna get on it soon 🤞 would love to hear how you get on with the others

@maloki This is great, I'll watch these later! I've also been trying to read more. It's a constant struggle between reading, other hobbies, or chores.

There's definitely something special about having a good book in-hand! I aim for e-books when I can, but some books are just require a physical copy.
