I consider myself somewhat of a book person.
I grew up an avid reader, I prefer books to movies by far, and I have a thousand books I’d like to experience.
But there’s one problem: it’s become a bit difficult to find the time to read at all, let alone as much as I’d like, as an adult.
So today, we’re talking about how we’ve been attempting to revive our reading (or listening!) habits, even while we have to maintain the rest of our busy schedules.
