My 2017 Resolution

I’ve been realizing over the past few months that my taste in books is changing, so I started clearing some space on my shelves to make room for books I think I’ll like more. It’s SO hard for me to get rid of a book without reading it, though!! There’s this weird sense of guilt that the book wasn’t loved or something. But I decided that the endless 2-star ratings and waste of time aren’t particularly fun, either, so I’m going to try to only accept and read books that I think I’ll really enjoy in 2017!

  1. Life is too short to read books we don’t love. 🙂 Good luck on clearing out your shelves – I’m sure you will find a library or something where they will be loved!

  2. And from what I’ve heard from my c-section friends. . .recovery from that ain’t no picnic either. Maybe she’ll go INTO labor then HAVE to have a c-istceon, ’cause I’ve heard recovery from BOTH of those at the same time is REALLY fun.A very facecious R–

  3. Great packing! I find packing very exciting and I always make loads of lists and pack more than I need. It's fascinating to see what you've picked. Odomos is a great mosquito repellent, and cheap in India, if you haven't tried it before.Sangu xx
