Speaking of books, I’ve really fallen behind on my goal to read 26 books this year. I have a list of them to read for book club, as well as a stack of finds from the used bookstore and another stack of books a friend here has given me.
I stalled at six books completed. I know I will get more read just for book club, but I’m finding it harder to sit down with a book now that the weather has turned warmer.
Saturday was book club day and it was stormy and dreary, a perfect day when I got home to cuddle in with a blanket and one of these books.
It was also a good day to nap and Dale and I must have needed it because that’s what we spent the better part of the afternoon doing.
Yesterday was cloudy and cool and we had to go up and get our tomatoes in at our neighbor’s garden, as well as thin out our onions, radishes and lettuce.
The fact of the matter is that I can always find other things to do in the warm weather months other than read.
Books and reading are more of a winter “sport” for me. Once I’m done with my writing assignments, I like being out in nature.
Do you find it harder to find time to read in the warm weather months?
