I’m feeling like I need to take it easy right now and not push myself to do anything, including reading anything “difficult.” I’m also trying to get back into taking care of myself a little better. A Cozy Mystery and a book about intentional living seemed like the perfect reads. On another note, I’ve put myself on a book-buying ban after realizing that I bought far more books than I read in the past couple of months, and I don’t have enough shelf space for all of them. My book-buying ban will last until I have room on my shelves, which might take me a while since I’m slowing down a bit.
