I’ve also been reworking my spending money budget every which way I can think of to see if I have enough money to go the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios while I’m there.

Total books for the year: 35 of 50.  Summer has come to the Bay Area of California.  Yesterday was 94 degrees, and today it’s supposed to get up to 96. I made peach iced tea yesterday and got guava juice to make guava pops. I also got raspberries and half-and-half to make raspberry “ice cream” (Freeze the raspberries, and then pour some half-and-half over them to coat. Yummy.).

Total books for the year: 34 of 50. I’ve been trying to stop myself from being distracted by every book I look at and want to pick up to read. Otherwise, I would have 9 books on my “Currently Reading” list right now, and it would be forever before I finished any of them. So, I applied some discipline to stick with the books I’ve already started, as much as possible, and finish them before I grab another book.

Total books for the year: 28 of 50. I spent a lot of time reading this week, but most of my reading material was in the form of magazines and the little books I got in my first package from the Mouse Book Club. I’m trying to keep myself off of my phone as much as possible, but that doesn’t always mean I have a physical and full-length book with me since I spend a lot of time on the bus and don’t always have the space in my bag.

Total books for the year: 28 of 50. The digital decluttering “challenge” continues to go well, but I’ve been trying to balance my free-time with other activities besides reading. I want to see if my reading goal for the year is still realistic, or if I’m going to need to increase it.

Total books for the year: 26 of 50. I’ve had a significant amount of time to read since I started the Digital Decluttering “challenge” in Digital Minimalism. As you might be able to tell, I’m also on a bit of a Non-Fiction kick. I’m not really sure why I’m choosing Non-Fiction over Fantasy, but I am learning a lot. Maybe that’s just what my brain needs right now.

  • The Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel

Total pages read this week: 169

Total books for the year: 24 of 50. This was a slow reading week.  I was focused on work and doing some much needed Spring cleaning at home. On top of that, I was dealing with a bit of insomnia (which is the only reason I managed to finish Stranger in the Woods) and feeling depressed.
