It’s been a good year of reading. To date I’ve read about 31 books this year, which is pretty good for me, I tend to be a slow reader. Last year I read about 23 books and the year before that was a bad year and I only read 12.
I think I’m coming up with a system which is allowing me to make the most of my free reading time. Lately I’m usually reading about 3 books at once. I’ve done this in the past and it doesn’t end well. I usually end up abandoning most of the books I start. But now I’m reading one physical books, one Kindle book, and one audiobook and it’s working great! I tend to read these different mediums in different places so it allows me to maximize the amount I read. Kindle books are great for when I’m out and about and bored. I listen to my audiobook in the car or when I’m doing things around the house and I usually keep my physical book close to my bed for when I want to snuggle and read.
I know there are people who feel we should only be loyal to one medium of book, but I think that’s silly. I love all the different options I have for reading now. It allows me more freedom and let’s me fit more reading into my busy adult life.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

FYI I just finished reading The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of her Own Making, that’s where my title for this blog came from 😉
