Small things: No.2

In the words of Rafiki from the Lion King... "It is time..." 

I revistited my list of inspirational little things and have another little update for you lovely folk. If you cast your mind back (or click on the link to my previous blog post about said list) you'll find number 2 on my list:

2. Read more. Perhaps set a specific title you want to read, or a goal of one book a month/week/year.

Back in January I made a few 'goals' for 2012' and one of them was actually to read more so maybe I've had a bit of a head start on this one but anyway... that aside I'm on my way to embedding the habit of reading in my life. I'd be lying if I said it was a hard thing, I've always liked reading and when I was on my travels I must have read non stop but then I had the time on my hands. 

And maybe that's the hardest part. Time. But it's a pleasure to make the time for, once you get into this reading malarky. I love the fact I can loose myself in a book after a long day at work. I love the fact that you can be in a grumpy mood and forget all about what caused it in the first place. I love the fact that reading seems to relax my brain before bedtime. I love the fact you can explore so many places and meet so many people in one place. 

So which books have I been making the time for you say? Well so far this year I have read my way through The Millennium Trillogy by Stieg Larsson. Last night I was up waaaaaaaaay past my bedtime reading my way through the third and final book in the trilogy and it's blooming brilliant!

Bad news now is that I'm only pages away from finishing the last book! Good news is that I have to find a new book to get my teeth into... any suggestions for when I finish this one?
