I have decided to try something new. Most of my reading sources come from my local public library. I love my library, they have access to books, DVDs, CDs, internet, board games, video games, newspapers and magazines. They also have digital downloads of audiobooks, movies, TV shows, comics, ebooks and music 🎶 . Numerous events are held each month from reading groups, trivia contests, concerts, crafts, and lectures. At any given time I will have between 30 and 40 items checked out. The majority of these are books 📚 and DVDs.
But when it comes to the books, I will checkout so many and never get around to reading most of them. So I have decided to do a purge of my library books. For the rest of the year I will TRY to only have 2-3 books out. I have decided this will not include the trade comics or audiobooks as I get through those pretty fast. But as for physical books I plan on only checking out 1 that I have really wanted to read for a while, that has been on my TBR for months or years and 1 that passes my fancy at the time of my library visit. Currently the 3 books I will keep are The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
Calamity Jane by Kathleen Backs
which I have been slowly making my way through during my downtime at work.. All others will be returned to the library ASAP. The goal of this is to keep me more focused and mindful of what I am reading and to keep the clutter of my house to a dull roar. Wish me luck and happy reading!
