Reading Fling: February 2023

Hello Family, Friends, and Fans!

I have a problem. A book problem, that some of you may relate to. I pick up whatever book I feel like reading that day and end up in the middle of 15+ books at any given time. It’s starting to get frustrating because I can’t keep everything straight anymore.

Do any of you have this problem? My solution for myself is to practice self-discipline. So I made myself some rules so I will finish the books I read.

  1. I cannot start reading any book I have already read.
  2. I cannot start reading any books I never read before.
  3. I must pick a single book from each genre I read.
  4. Either read those books to completion or get rid of the book.

Books I am Reading Based on These Rules:

A disclaimer: I am not getting paid to recommend these books. I am sharing them in the interest of informing you of what I am reading, and am not getting compensated for mentioning these books, authors, and publishers.

Self-Help, Personal Development, and Psychology: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Fiction Short Stories and Anthologies: The Dragons Within anthologies by Balance of Seven Press (Not including the one I am published in, as I have already read it.)

Fiction Novels: Alienated by Melissa Landers, a local author from my home state that I met at a book fair.

Writing Reference: How to Become.a Fearless Writer by Nina Harrington

School Textbooks (2 titles): Early World Literature by Soomo Learning and The Poet’s Companion by Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux.

What are you reading?

Until next time, F3s!
