Today is the start of something new! On Wednesdays, I want to encourage those of us who get a little bogged down with daily activities and don’t have much time for recreational reading.
Add Unread Book Guilt to Mother Guilt, Wife Guilt and Homemaker Guilt‘¦and, well, nothing good comes from guilt. Let’s agree that whether you read a book or a paragraph this week, you can still find something meaningful!
I have invited some friends to participate with me. You’ll just love these girls, like I do. Next week you will be able to hear from them about what they have been reading lately. I would like you to join us too. So whether you are up to date with your reading list, or in danger from your stack of falling books, here’s how you can get involved:
- Read something! Even something short.
- Pick some words to share (or even just ONE word)
- Add your own words if you like, and not if you don’t.
- Post the name of the book, the quote, and your own words in the Comments.
Can you participate? I think it will be great fun!
Do YOU have a pile of books like this, just staring at you? Mocking you? If I am not careful, my Unread Book Guilt + my friends on Goodreads + piles of laundry to fold + dishes to wash + papers to be filed = too much unfinished business. It. Makes. Me. Cray. Cray.
Don’t get me wrong I love books! So this week, let’s begin to make nice with that snarky stack of books again. We can carve out a little time. Let’s curl up on the couch and look for the words that matter to us.
