Luckily, I had a change of positions at work that doesn't really require me to work as much at home anymore. That has helped a lot. I've also noticed that since I've been getting back into reading as avidly as I did as a teen, that I'm not as interested in binge watching t.v. anymore. BONUS!! haha
So, I went on Pinterest and found a challenge that suited me. One that would challenge me as a reader. I love the one that this blogger created and I think you will too! Without further ado, here is the challenge and the books that I'm really looking forward to reading this year.
