This post comes to you from me, someone who likens to Belle in the sense of being a girl with her nose stuck in a book. I’ve fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to reading for pleasure. Though I’ve felt less than inclined to do all my readings for school this semester, it doesn’t mean I’ve replaced non-academic reading time with personal reading time. (I fill this time with Pinterest, if you were wondering.) But with the weather cooling down and me needing more excuses to not drive places (because who actually likes driving on the icy roads?! I have never met someone who enjoys this?), I decided to try and make an active effort to reduce Pinterest time and increase reading-for-pleasure time.
