Goal Setting In My Ttwd Life
I love wrist watches! Watches are wonderful jewelry statements coupled with pearl bracelet and the gold and silver bangle........ I have several favorite watches, but never wear them anymore. Who needs a watch when we all have our phones?
Watches speak of schedules, appointments, timelines, calendars, deadlines and passage of time. Two years and a little more, I began this blog. Since then, time has a way of slipping right through my fingers. I have written before about my book club. I am a co-founder. We are approaching our 20th year of gathering together for the love of reading. The chair of the book club is not setting the world on fire with her reading. I use online book reviews to "book talk" when sharing titles with the club. So I have learned to fake things quite well.
The last book I read was Sarah Coltman's Beating the Bounds. I loved the story and read it twice. How do I share that with the book club? I read PK's Cassie books and Leigh's wide selection. Again, how do I share those?
There is an app on my iPad which I love. The ibook app is a real trip. I can download book samples and then decide if I want to make the purchase of the book. I have gone download crazy. I counted how many samples I have downloaded. Would you believe 153 samples are on my iPad. No kidding!
So I have decided to require more of myself. I am hereby limiting my blog reading and emailing. I am devoting more time to real life reading. I will report back once a little time has past and let you know how I am doing. Remember, I am the one who has faithfully kept a list of all the books I have read since I was eight years old. You should see the gaps in my reading list since I began blogging.
So blog readers and bloggers alike, how is your real life reading? Share the last book you read? Truth or dare here!
