I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I devoured Pony Pal and Dear America / Royal Diaries books. However, my reading rate plummeted in college. I realized in 2012 that I hadn’t read a single book for fun that year and vowed to start reading again. I’m pretty sure I read more novels than textbooks during the next two years of grad school, which I absolutely don’t regret :).
These days I read about a book a week, thanks to Audible. I listen to books during every spare moment I have, which brings enjoyment to things like driving, getting ready in the morning, or mucking out a stable. I think Audible is the greatest thing since sliced bread and I can’t overstate how much I love it. I still read as well and am usually in the middle of at least one book and an issue of National Geographic.
I’m part of a book club too, which I’m finding is a great way to mix up my reading list.
