I don’t actually go shopping a lot, but I love to do the whole ‘pretend you have all the money in the world’ online shopping spree. Now that it’s gift giving season, I thought I’d pick out a few presents for myself. Let’s be honest, it’s mostly clothes, but I threw a few books in there. I think one of my New Year’s resolutions will be to read more books. I was a huge reader as a kid, and I still do a lot of reading (mostly online) but I have a hard time finding books that I think are good enough to finish. It also feels like an indulgence when I have so many other things I could be doing. But I want to make the time, and bring the happy feeling I get when I am on vacation, and can systematically work my way through a big pile of books to my everyday life.
