Take me away

Reading is fun for me. I like to get absorbed in a story and let it take me away. I have not been doing as much reading lately as I would like. Gonna try to change that.

I just finished a book by Mary Kay Andrews titled, The Fixer Upper. It was good, and I look forward to finding more titles by her. I just started a book by Danielle Steel called Precious Gifts. I like it so far. I also have another of her books, the newest title, Blue, waiting in the wings. I’m looking forward to finding even more good books to read.

Something I don’t usually do is read self-help books. I also don’t like to have more than one book going at a time. But, I’m actually doing both of those things right now. I also just started reading a book titled The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It’s about the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing. The fact that I’m even reading this makes me chuckle just a little. It’s just not my thing! But, I’ve been hearing about people who have read the book and then completely decluttered their houses and kept them that way. My house is tiny, and, it’s clean. But, it often feels a little cluttered. That’s why, several weeks ago, I started going through closets and drawers. I have several bags of things waiting to be donated. But, there is still so much we could get rid of. I’m still a little skeptical that a book will make me finish the decluttering process once and for all, and keep it that way. But, I guess I’m hopeful!

I save my books after I read them. I have an old dresser in the basement that is full of books that I’ve read. I have, over the years, gotten rid of a lot to make room for more. I don’t know why I save them, but it’s hard for me to get rid of them, especially if it’s a book I absolutely loved. Maybe The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up can help me with that!

What are you reading right now?
