Anne Bogel is a super reader. She reads like three to four books every week (and not just little romance novels… no offense to romance). She reads classics and sci-fi and fantasy and nonfiction and just… a lot of books. Listening to her interview on the Read Aloud Revival really inspired me to read more.
So, I gathered up all the books I wanted to read (The Hobbit, the Chronicles of Narnia, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, The Quest for Truth series, Jane Austen’s novels, Heidi, and several others) and put them in order on my “to-read shelf.”
After hearing that Anne Bogel often read five books at once, I decided I should do that too (only with three, though). I listed all the books I wanted to read with little deadlines beside them (one being September 1st-wow!). So, now, I finished one book and am reading Tangle by Brock Eastman, Emma by Jane Austen, and Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
I have really enjoyed reading more often! My writing is suffering a little bit, but if I can learn to cut out less-worthwhile things like TV, then I can keep reading and writing both at strong levels.
My goal of reading is taking sprout, and I’m getting back into my much-loved old habits of reading.
