As the summer comes to an end, hopefully so does my recent slump. 🤞
It’s been a much slower reading month for me since I started a new job and have been generally just tired while trying to fix my sleep schedule. But I don’t think I’ve been doing all that badly?
Heat wave and new job and books, oh my. It’s been a long and mostly uneventful month.
I’d originally wanted to celebrate graduation with a cross-country road trip, which for obvious reasons won’t be possible this year. But when I saw the Goodreads list “Armchair Traveling: Books Set in Every U.S. State [plus D.C.]”, I figured this might be a somewhat acceptable substitute. (I won’t be following their list, but wanted to credit the source/inspiration for my challenge.)
Since I just want to keep it simple, there aren’t really any rules for this challenge. I’ll continue to read books by diverse (Q/POC) authors, which hasn’t really been an issue for me; the location doesn’t need to feature heavily in the story. I’m hoping to finish by the end of the year, but I won’t stress too much about it.
Seven months. Fifty-one places & books. Let’s do this. 🚗
At long last, I am a college/uni graduate and fully vaccinated and looking forward to Doing Things again. (Not sure what Things, exactly, but I’ll figure it out.)
Not a huge improvement on January, truth be told … but there are still 10 months in the year? And March has spring break, that’s a definite perk
even if I can’t really go anywhere or do anything special and I am definitely counting down the days.
