I’m wanting to get more into two things: podcasts and reading.
What better way to re-start these two interests than by listening to a podcast about reading?
On occasion I had watched the Book Riot videos on YouTube, and listened to some of their podcasts. So I started up Podcast Addict on my phone (I like this app so much I ended up buying the ad-free version) and discovered that for over 20 episodes they have a newer podcast called All the Books. The link takes you to their archive so you can download it on any device you wish.
I enjoy listening to them talk about up coming releases and ideas for my ever growing queue of TBR books. I use my library card for both digital and physical copies.
I also am thinking of starting a diary for my books. Nothing fancy, just loose-leaf in a duotang, or a scribbler. Titles will often pique my interest and then of course life will boldly interrupt my daydreams. I like to keep track of where I first heard of a book, why I’m interested in it, and then the results. I do use Goodreads for the social media side of things. But it’s good to have a place to ramble about random nothings, too.
I want to start being a better reader. All too often I’ll get excited about a book, start it and then get distracted. I’m excited about finding new books to read. 📚
