Last week, I got an email from my best bookish friend, Danielle
What are you reading, she said. Write a book post, she said.
The thing is. I’ve read a total of nine books. This whole year. For someone with a book hoarding issue, that’s well, an issue.
I love books. I love reading them. Sniffing them. Acquiring them.
Books are my thing.
The bookcases in my living room are triple-stacked. I have a book stack in my bedroom the size of a small island. There’s a stack in my kitchen and 800 on my Kindle.
I recently upgraded to a Kindle Oasis
, and Neil has my Paperwhite
for all his geeky books. I converted him, you guys. I feel kinda bad about it.
Read here about how I became a Kindle convert.

My point is, my name is Lorna and I hoard books.
And so, to declare in September that I’ve only read nine of those books this year, is kinda shitty.
OK, maybe I’m writing more. Overthinking more. Blogging more.
In fact, my most recent finished read is, The Essential Habits Of 6-Figure Bloggers: Secrets of 17 Successful Bloggers You Can Use to Build a Six-Figure Online Business.
This book, um, inspired my first review on Amazon. 5 stars. Because the secrets of 17 professional bloggers is a lot of information.
It outlines actionable professional blogging habits, with full interviews and suggestions on further reading.
Read and use this book with a notebook, several pens, and lots of coffee. Each blogger shares their blogging tips and also suggests their favorite business books. So, a great book to actually study, and more books to add to the TBR.
If you want to buy the book, you get these bonuses for a limited time.
And then there’s my book haul from our Edinburgh trip, which I haven’t even touched.
The Last Poets
Ladder of Years
A Death In The Family
