It’s month two of my 2017 reading challenge! Go back here to read up on the original premise and follow my progress.
I think I finally found the schedule I need in order to still be able to post twice per week because for these last two weeks it’s been insanely hard.
My new schedule will be on Mondays and Fridays, giving me plenty of cushion between to write my posts. As always, my favorite saying on the blog is that ‘Sometimes Life Happens’ but I’m going to try my hardest to not have to write another post with that header as long as I can help it. But onto the business at hand.
For the month of February, I’ve selected my two books to read within the four-week timeline. The stipulations were the following:
- A non-fiction book (about to start reading Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon, a book mentioned originally in an earlier post I wrote on being the change you want to see in the world. Looking forward to it).
- A book that will improve a specific area of your life (The Wisdom of Insecurity by Alan Watts focuses heavily on the ability to find patience in chaos and serenity in unpredictable times; and although I consider myself a pretty balanced person, I definitely want to delve further into deeper discussions on examining the needed mental fortitude to find peace in even the most dire situations and be able to function with ease.)
This goal of being able to read a minimum of twenty-six books in one year has been interesting to say the least. January went by, for the most part, without a hitch (although I BARELY finished The Three-Body Problem in time. My short reviews for my chosen reads for January will be posted by the end of this month as well.
Let’s keep this momentum going.
Until next time.
