I looooooove to read.
In fact, I would say my reading hopes, dreams and ambitions for myself far outweigh the actual time I have to devote to reading. Which is a shame really… what every happened to not being a grown-up and doing the responsible thing- instead, choosing to lose yourself in a great story for days on end?!.. lol
But, I do have a book list. Well, a “hope I get to read this someday” list and it’s in my Filofax. In all it’s colored and rainbow glory:
I also have a Book Club list:
And I realized it’s hard for me to feel inspired to start a new book without seeing the cover. I know, I know- don’t judge a book by it’s cover- but that’s not what happens in my brain. In MY brain I can remember why I wanted to read the book in the first place when I see a picture of the cover. It must have something to do with thinking in color or being such a visually-oriented person. Anyway, I came up with this solution to looking for my next reading companion:
These are all covers of books from my list, shrunk down to fit onto this page. And they are all removeable as I have a moleskin “Book Journal” where I keep a log of what I’ve read and a stick-in of the cover so I can remember. And it looks neat. 🙂
See? Little book “stickers”. So now, when I’m looking for a book to read OR have finished one I can check these pages and feel inspired to read something on my iPad.
Look at all that lovely reading time to be had…
Happy Organizing… and Reading!
