I am a creature of habit for sure. If there’s something I find that works for me I will stay with it for as long as I possibly can. It’s true for restaurants and coffee shops, but’s definitely true for books.
When I find something that suits me, I absolutely do not let it go.
Read for a half an hour before bed
I aim to read a little more every day, and one of the easiest ways to do this is reading before bed. It’s a much nicer way to wind down than spending hours glued to your phone.
Read on the way to work
As much as I like ending my day with reading, it’s also how I like to start it. My commute is just under an hour, which is the perfect time to rack up some more pages.
Have a cup of tea beside me while reading
I like having something comforting with me when I’m reading, and a good cuppa is the most usual candidate.
Two Netgalley books a month
My Netgalley shelf is, to put it lightly, abysmal. I need to get myself a little bit closer to that illusive 80 per cent, so I’ve endeavoured to read at least two books from there per month. It ptobably doesn’t help that I keep requesting, too.
Backlist reading as much as possible
Much like Netgalley, I own a startling amount of books I’ve bought but never read. It needs to change for sure, so this year I’ll hopefully buy a little less and read a lot more from my backlist. Think of it like #shopyourstash, but with books.
