#WeekendReads

Is there anything better than a good book?

How about time to read that good book in your favorite chair and cozy blanket?

This year has not been my greatest reading year… not by a long shot.  I had the hardest time finding anything that would capture my attention, then when it did, my life seemed to get in the way.  I know, I know, this is not a blog for complaining, so you’ll be happy with my next adventure.  Let me preface it by saying that if you asked me anytime in the last ten (or more) years ago, I would’ve told you that my dream job would involve reading books and writing.  So that’s what I’m doing.blog-forgettingtime

I am going to treat this as if I’m getting paid to read, because that is eventually the goal.  Embracing the whole ‘act as if’ rule to manifest the dream job is the adventure.  Sometimes you just have to take that step into the life you’ve always wanted, and fake it till you make it.

So… The plan is that every Thursday or Friday, I will be posting about #WeekendReads and the books that are on my TBR list.  I have always had a list of books to be read, and the stack of books piling up on my shelf is obnoxious.  Obnoxious in the best possible way though 🙂

This week I am reading The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin.  I literally found this just browsing books that were available on my Overdrive App, and after reading the first couple chapters, I was hooked.  The reviews on Amazon are equally as good.  I can’t wait to dive back into it this weekend.

If you’re interested, post your own #weekendreads on Twitter and tag me @coffee_andwords.  I would love to get more ideas for the next book choice.

Have a great weekend!
