Is it just me or does everyone have about twenty books on their bedside table waiting to be read. Actually, they don’t all fit on my bedside table and are lined up by the wall next to my bed. How will I ever get to all the books I want to read? Right now within reaching distance are:
- · all four of the Elena Ferrante books
- · The Lost Man, Jane Harper
- · Bridges of Clay, Markus Zusak
- · The Last of the Bonegilla Girls, Victoria Purman
- · Underworld, Don Delillo
- · Yates Garden Guide (one day I will start a veggie patch)
- · Northerly, Byron Writers Festival magazine
- · WQ, Qld Writers Centre magazine
- · Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman
- · SweetBitter, Stephanie Danler
- · The Barefoot Investor, Scott Pape
- · How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie - I’ve had this book for about twenty years and have always meant to read it
...and the two I have just finished, The Children Act by Ian McEwen and Out of Sight by Elmore Leonard. I loved both of them. And, that’s not counting those downloaded on my iPad.
I want to read more, but where to you find time? I only read at night before going to bed and even then I’m often distracted by the headlines online.
I know I should get my act together with audio books as I do commute two and half hours each day to and from work. This would help.
So, how do you get all the reading you want to do, done? I’d love to know.
