If you're new around here, let me tell you a little bit about my book club. First, it's just me. Yep, a one member book club. Why? Well, mostly because I have a hard time making it to a normal book club meeting. But also this is my way to keep myself accountable and keep up with a hobby I actually enjoy. It's easy to just succumb to the scroll right before bedtime, but my "book club" is a self-imposed reading deadline that reminds me to put down my phone at night and pick up a book.
And just like last month, I'm selecting three books, one from each of these categories: parenting, politics or business, and fiction book. I'm sticking with this framework because I've recently been drawn more to non-fiction books, but I always enjoy losing myself in a great piece of fiction.
I used to be a voracious reader when I was younger, but somewhere between working a 9-5 job and chasing after two energetic boys, I've been pretty consistently reading less and less. In an effort to get back on the book horse, so to speak, I've tried to join book clubs, both virtual and in town. But my attempts are usually thwarted due to the challenges of coordinating mid-week evening schedules with childcare and work.
So in an effort to read a few more books each year, I'm committing to a quarterly reading list. It's not much, but it's better than nothing.
And I realized last year I only read non-fiction books. Strange I know. But parenting and business books are what's speaking to me at this season of life. So I'm picking three books to read each quarter: one parenting, one politics or business, and one fiction book.
