Now that it’s July the year is half over. Thank God. Let’s pray that the second half has a happier ending than the first half. What we all need is a fresh start.
I decided a half new year resolution is in order. So much has happened since January I can’t even remember if I made any new year resolutions for 2020. If I did, they were very quickly thrown right out the window. I wanted to give my self a challenge, something I hadn’t tried before and the usual stuff like losing weight and exercising more were completely off the table.
One look at my Kindle before I went to bed last night and I knew what that challenge would be. Cleaning out my Kindle. My sister and I have an ongoing banter about the number of unread books I store on my Kindle. Her max is three. Mine… I counted 56 unread titles. Yikes!
I set my own ground rules. No time limit but I will read all the unread books currently on my Kindle. The only new books allowed to be downloaded are the monthly book club selection and any titles I currently have on hold at the library. They only allow 6 titles on hold at one time so once those 6 have been delivered, that’s it. And I am free to stop reading any book currently on my Kindle at any time if I really don’t like it. Keep in mind, I rarely give up on a book because I’m always hoping it will get better by the end.
The first book I picked from the list is Mine by Courtney Cole. I have no idea why I would have picked this title since it’s not a topic I’d usually go for. And I’m not really liking it. Two women fighting over a man during a hurricane. I say if he’s dragging two women along, they both need to dump him. He’s not worth fighting for. And hurricanes are for stuffing yourself with junk food so you can fall into a sugar induced coma until the storm passes.
If you find yourself with an overstuffed Kindle like me, join me in this challenge. I’m sure mixed in with the not so great reads will be some treasures. I will track my progress for you. Stay in touch! Today I start the countdown to a clean Kindle. Ready. Set. Go!
