For the Month: August
Posted by kjcardoza at 1:40 pm in 2017, For the month

I’m back to school but had a good August in terms of reading. I’ve got hundreds of podcasts backed up because it’s been audiobook listening most of the time. Now that school’s in session, I expect it will fall off considerably.  I’ll do the best I can to keep some balance.

I had one of the most prolific reading months due to my surgery and not working. It reminds me of the old days… Plus, I binge watched at least a dozen series on Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix and TV!

Foot surgery has put a monkey wrench in my summer plans!  I won’t be listening to audio books on any long walks but I can listen while I’m seated in a chair with my leg up, knitting or doing puzzles.   I haven’t had the concentration to read paper books since the surgery but have mostly been listening along. Here’s my little list.. .although the Gabaldon book was 50 hours long!

Haven’t had as much time to read as I would have liked this past month. Honestly, I spent a LOT of time binge watching series on Amazon Prime, Netflix and my DVR. Also, I am not proud to say that I spent (wasted) a lot of time on social media getting sucked into all of the drama that’s going on in this country since January 20th.  I’m swearing it off and will definitely be unplugging more. It’s good for my reading list and good for my soul….

Books Read 2016
Posted by kjcardoza at 8:11 am in Uncategorized

While not the greatest of years once again, I at least surpassed a goal of a book a week.  I did have some VERY long audio books in there (40+ hours) and have also been listening to some podcasts again so it cuts into my audio book reading time too.  Jake hiked the AT so I read quite a few memoirs from people who have done so. I also read some leadership/teaching books as always. We traveled to Madeira Island for two weeks in July, right in the middle of my usual summer of reading so I didn’t read for those couple of weeks and worst of all, I suffered from plantar fasciitis from the end of August to Thanksgiving so my walking/audio book time was cut out too. Unfortunately, I’ve been having a lot of eyestrain this year and have trouble reading paper or ebooks for any length of time… :(  Even with reading glasses, the words begin to blur on the page and I have to struggle through.  All in all, I did pretty darn good, considering…. For 2017, I’m going to shoot for my 100 book goal once again, with a minimum of 55.  Happy Reading!

Another small reading month, although one of my audio books was extremely long!  Can’t wait until I am off in December so I can read during break.
