Thank you also to thebookprescription where I found it
I’m writing down the books that I’ve read in a real notebook – at least the titles and authors. This is something I’ve only just started doing in 2020 which is a pity because it was would be fun to look back and see what I’ve read – over a lifetime that’s a lot.
I always read before I fall asleep but usually have so many books on the go that I can’t decide which to pick up. My bedside table is a toppling pile, upon which my mobile perches precariously at night. Am currently working through Rebecca Solnit Whose Story is It and Dorothy McArdle Dark Enchantment. Also reading Riot Days by Maria Alyokhina, a member of the activist group Pussy Riot.
And 3 good habits I’m trying to acquire:
Finishing everything. I always buy too many books then don’t finish them all but I’ve got better about finishing books in recent times.
Don’t lose stuff. Shelve books properly. Get books organised and keep them that way. I’ve been known to rebuy books that I already own but can’t find or did own but recycled at some point in time, then regretted it.
I’m trying to update all the various websites that are now keen to keep track of my reading. I find this very laborious. Is this a good habit? Or is it I feel I ought to do this because everyone else sort of does it habit? Mmmm! Not sure.
