I have just ordered 7 or 8 books from the library. As the weather is warming up and it is too hot to do much else I will spend the afternoons reading. There are a few Christmas books on my list. I need to try to get back to no tech nights. It is so easy to get lost looking at a tablet or phone.

I was pleased with the goal I had set this year of 10 books, read 13.
DH mentioned that he would like to read a book a month in 2024 so I will try and match his goal.
