September 2023 – My Book ListOn October 1, 2023 by Pam
I can honestly say that I love to read. I read SO many books that I need an app to keep track of them. I use Goodreads because it allows me to track my reads in a simple and efficient way and gives book recommendations. I also have my “yearly” goal. My goal this year is 150 books and I am currently at 122 books. I read ALL kinds of books. I also subscribe to Kindle Unlimited which gives me access to books for reduced prices. I subscribe to audible where I receive two credits per month and I listen to LOTS of books – while I am cooking, driving, biking, walking, etc. I can’t imagine not reading or listening to books. I read fiction and non-fiction and I have definitely increased my knowledge through reading – about different countries and cultures, perspectives, ways of thinking and tips to move forward in life when you are struggling. Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. As we get older, reading helps improve our focus and our memory. I read and listen purely for entertainment – I just spent a full day reading – I am reading about Jewish culture in the 1960’s and it is really helping me to empathize with young women in that period of time and think about how young women are still treated today. Reducing stress and improving my mental health are all part of my reading hobby. Start small – read a novel that appeals to you and then expand to the many books that are available in many different formats. Join me on my reading journey – enjoyment, learning and growing through books. Search my blog for LOTS of suggestions!!
