Yep, that is one of my goals for the New Year, too, to build up my virtual bookshelves/library and go back to my first love ~ reading. Last year I was able to read more books and complete my Shopaholic Series collection. Even when I was busy looking after the little man and keeping the house organized, not to mention doing all these activities online, I was able to squeeze in finishing a number of paperbacks during my downtime. This year I plan to read more books in my stash that has been lying dusty for ages now, including classic novels, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

I have also started stocking up on books late last year by buying them as gifts to myself {it was one of my simple pleasures in life! ^_^}. I chanced upon these hardbound copies of The Witch of Portobello by Paolo Coelho and Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella on this e-bay shop and I just can’t resist. The books are sold at only P200 each! Oh and I also got a copy of J.D. Salinger’s The Cather in the Rye the last time I went to the bookstore. And my sister, Bel, gifted me with this millennium edition of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina last Christmas! ^_^

Am all set for the first quarter of this year with plans to finish all these books on my stash. What have you been reading lately?

  1. Wonderful post!!! With our ever-demanding role as stay-at-home moms, reading is indeed the ice breaker to our monotonous routine. So I do make sure a book is beside my breastfeeding nook to easily flip some pages when the little one is nursing. Right now, I’m into the book you gifted me…A Woman Of Influence. Thanks very much Vix! :))

    1. it is so true, reading is one of the things that i love most + i guess am going to be doing it as long as the busy motherhood business allows me! ohh, I hope you like the book. i read more when i was pregnant + was always with a book on hand whenever i stay up late taking care of the little one when he was still a baby 🙂

  2. i used to read books. i actually have a stacked here to read but i got no time at all. i wish i have more time to read than dawdle. =D
