Over the past few weeks, I have been reading quite a few books. I have also read several books in digital format. Reading digitally is something I seem to do well during the daytime, and has worked for both non fiction and fiction. Non fiction is more of a daytime activity for me, as it usually stretches my mind and needs more mental concentration.However for nighttime reading I still prefer paper.
I have also challenged myself to read 100 books in 2012. I tried this once before, when I was in my early teens, and managed to get to an official total of 99 books. I kept track of my books in a fuchsia covered spiral bound notebook. It is the one of the few possessions I have ever regretted disposing. However, I seem to recall some of the included several Nancy Drew’s, some Hardy Boys, Little Women and Little Men. In addition I think I remember reading a few Reader’s Digest books that included, Hotel St. Gregory, Here Comes The Brides and Menfreya in the Morning by Victoria Holt.
This time I am tracking my books online with Good Reads, an online community of readers. So far I am up to 22 books this year. One of the books I just completed was Quiet- The Power of the Introvert, check my last post for a review. I have also finished the three books of The Hunger Games and completed books 1 – 4 in the Game of Thrones series.
I’ve been a happy reader since I was 4 years old. Reading fiction is where I usually unwind, it is my restorative niche (see my last post) for more info on this concept.
So what is on your reading list? Do you separate out daytime reading from nighttime reading?
