We’re already halfway through this year! That seems impossible to me—but then I guess my understanding of time passing has always been strange. There are still six whole months in this year left, but I still feel like I’m running out of time in 2019. And there are still so many things I want to do in this year!
Since the last time I posted about my books, I’ve started working again full time, and so I thought that I would have read less books in the second quarter of the year than I did in the first. But in the end I managed to mostly catch up with myself, and I feel pretty good about that. (This is partly because I squeezed in some novellas, which are obviously quicker reads, but I’m counting it all the same.)

My nonfiction reading slacked off this past quarter. I’d like to say I wasn’t sure why, but I remember starting a few of the ones on my list and just not getting pulled in the way I was with the books I read last quarter. In the next three months I’d like to catch up with that somewhat, especially as I keep adding nonfiction books to my TBR list. Eventually I’m going to have to read some of them, right? Or else the list will just keep growing forever…
I am going to be doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month, and I usually slow down a little on my word input when I’m pushing so hard for word output. I’m going to keep an eye on that this month and try not to slow down too much—and I do have a plan to help with that, so we’ll see if that plan works.
So far I feel pretty good about my reading for the year, and there are still so many books I’m looking forward to reading!
