Making Time for Novels

It’s no secret that I’m very talented at staying up past my bedtime reading. That’s probably what will happen tonight. 

In between working on homework and starting the transcription of the front matter of this text, I went to the public library and checked out a stack of books.

I came home and worked on some more of the transcription,while watching Game of Thrones. But the stack of books was begging to be read. How could I say no? 

Self-care is important. I tend to forget that when I’m in the middle of a project. One of my personal goals is to be more aware of how I’m using my time. And reading a book that isn’t on a syllabus nor has anything to do with a project that I am working on makes for excellent self-care.

As I sat typing this on my phone, my Fitbit reminded me that it’s almost my bedtime. Maybe one night I’ll actually listen to it. 

I’m a sucker for cheesey historical fiction.

  1. Hi Angela, I hope you don’t mind me commenting and reading the site as it’s in progress. I, too, am a sucker for cheesy historical fiction. My current read is “A Gentleman in Moscow” by Amor Towles. Reading novels is one of my greatest pleasures and definitely part of my self-care.
