February 24, 2019: Reading to Escape

I’ve been very happy with my reading goals thus far. I know we’re only a couple months into 2019, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that I’ve done a considerable amount of reading. At this time last year, I don’t think I picked up a book to read for enjoyment. Aside from searching through books for my classroom (equally valuable, since they enrich my students’ love of reading), I didn’t really pursue reading for personal enjoyment. This year, I’ve read 9 books so far in 2019, and one my way to begin another one. I’m very excited about this fact! I’ll write about my February reads in a post later this week.

This weekend I’ve been experiencing a heighented amount of stress. I’m planning my wedding for August, which brings on details that I would rather not deal with! Through all of the craziness, I’m relieved that I can turn to reading and escape the madness for short periods!
