book shopping list: september 2018


Another month, another long list of books that are on my mind. Glad to report that I finished two books this month! Sequential reading, at least with fictions, is proving to be a solid method.

Deleting Instagram and Facebook on my phone freed up a lot of time, allowing me to read at least twenty to thirty minutes before going to bed every night. I can’t get myself to delete Youtube yet due to my irrational obsession with the tiny house movement. Happy with my progress so far!
