Darling hearts!

Today I’m talking books, books and all things books!

Specifically how I read so many books, how I track the books I read and how YOU can read even more books!

The 14 things I talk about are:

  1. Set a goal
  2. Read every book you have before you buy more
  3. Make your reading goals public
  4. Stop the “endless scroll” on social media apps
  5. Layer your space with books in a variety of different mediums
  6. Pass read books on to friends, family, clients and charities
  7. A lock screen reminder: stop scrolling, read books
  8. The more I read, the faster I get
  9. Skim read books if they’re hard to read
  10. If a book is shit, stop reading
  11. I read in front of the television
  12. Take up book baths (read the book, in the bath, until the book is finished. PHENOMENAL)
  13. Read a variety of genres, and read more than one book at a time
  14. Put your kids to bed earlier

To track read books:

  • Goodreads
  • Kindle folders
  • Draft blog post
