Guess how many books I read in December - ZERO! The busyness of the holidays got me sidetracked. I stopped reading as much on my lunch break. So I didn't end up reading 26 books this year, but the important thing is that I am reading on a regular basis again! Reading brings me a lot of joy, and provides an escape and some much-needed "me time".

In 2016, I'm committed to reading more - I'm shooting for 30 books! I've got a few titles on my "To Read" list and will definitely be getting back into that lunch break reading. That's where I read the most during 2015. I'll be sharing a Book Report every month in 2016. Any books on your "To Read" list for 2016?

I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!


  1. You did great this past year :) I bombed way before December :) but with the colder temperatures I'll be back at it. I have a few I wan
    t to read that are now sitting on my end table by the recliner.

    1. Thanks Tina! I've been making reading a priority again since the beginning of the year. I'm excited to be reading again!

  2. Great job with your challenge, Emily! Like you, I want to read more this year for all of the same reasons you mentioned. :)

  3. Ah you were so close Emily but I know how December becomes such a whirlwind of business. Glad you are enjoying reading, I actually downloaded my first digital book, not that I enjoy reading digital, but I needed this book as it was the first in a series that I received as physical books. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed reading.

    1. It was too busy! I definitely like the portability and convenience of my Kindle. Hope you enjoy the digital book!

  4. Really impressive. Way to go! December does come with a certain hand of busy!

    1. thanks Tisha! Yes December was so busy! January is better :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I love reading all of them!
