Hey guys! I have been in a huge reading slump lately and that has been affecting my blogging as well. I haven’t been posting as often lately because I haven’t really been doing much reading. I’m in the middle of several books because nothing really seems to catch my interest. I’ve been so excited for Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas to come out but I haven’t wanted to start it until this slump is over. I also really hope my slump is done by the time October starts because I have a pretty good line up for my Halloweenie TBR.At home, I’ve been moving books from one pile to another, sorting and resorting. I’ve been toying with the idea of boxing up some of the books I either know I won’t read any time soon (like most of my non-fiction) or books I know I won’t want to reread anytime soon in order to make room on my shelves for the books I have just sitting in various piles.
I still haven’t quite decided for sure yet. I have the possibility of getting a free bookshelf but I’m not sure if we can find the room for it. We’re also planning to do some rearranging in our office to make better use of the space since it looks as though we’ll have to postpone buying a new house.
Recently I decided to start a Bullet Journal, well, at least my version of one anyways. It took a lot of time to set up but it was fun doing it.
When I was doing my research beforehand to decide what kinds of pages I wanted to add to mine, I came across this pin that had a really cool way to keep track of book stats. Even though I’m starting my journal late in the year for the book stats I decided to go all the way back to the beginning of the year so I could include the different stats in my year end survey.
I am tracking various things including rereads, female/male authors, paper/audio/ebook format, fiction/non-fiction, genre, and year published. I love seeing the trends in my reading.
So that’s pretty much what I have been up to lately on the bookish front. How is your month of September going?
