Book Challenge 2019!

I used to read voraciously in high school. My screen time was very limited, so I filled up my time with reading - and I LOVED it. I loved how reading made me feel. I long for that feeling - like my brain was being fed and nourished - but I’ve fallen into the bad habit of tv watching and mindless scrolling. Because, let’s be real - its so much easier to consume the fast food of social media rather than making the effort to think and digest real brain food. But the long term effects are drastically different, just as with consuming fast food vs. healthy, nutrient rich food. It takes effort and discipline to eat healthy, both on the mental and physical level.

So, I’m making the effort. Twenty five books in 2019. This may not sound like a lot to some of you advanced readers but considering I haven’t actually finished a book in two or three years, this will be a huge accomplishment. A few of the books I started in 2018, but I’m still counting them for my 2019 challenge- they are marked with a *.
