Read 52 books a year challenge

*Affiliate links and Collaborative post.

Last year, I read 52 books and I couldn’t believe I actually smashed my reading goals! The plan was to read a book a week, and share the title of the book on social media every week. I was ahead on some weeks, and some weeks I was so behind. The year ended with me not be able to share the names of the last 4 books I read last year, because it was a 6 in 1 book, and there was no time to share all of them during the festive period when I was pretty much offline. I enjoyed the reading challenge.

The books I read are all non-fiction, and each book teaches me something new. I am glad I enjoy reading so much. It is one of the last things I do before I go to sleep. I enjoy reading a good book on my Amazon Kindle before dozing off on my king size bed. It is a super relaxing way to end the day. I sleep better when I read prior to dozing off!

I think having a comfy bed also helps and I recommend you check out King size beds from Bed Guru. Quality sleep is very important for your wellbeing, which is why you need to pay special attention to your bed, bedding and your night routine.

 

Read 52 books a year challenge

I am starting off the year with this amazing book – Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You and Restoring Your Health and Power by Christiane Northrup. It is a great book that teaches you how to protect yourself as an empath. I have learnt some new tips and I will be trying them in the next few days. The book is packed with so many wise words, it is definitely worth a read.

Dodging Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Guide to Evading Relationships That Drain You

Here is a brief description of the book –

In Dodging Energy Vampires, Christiane Northrup, M.D., draws on the latest research in this exciting new field, along with stories from her global community and her own life, to explore the phenomenon of energy vampires and show us how we can spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our own energy. You’ll delve into the dynamics of vampire-empath relationships and discover how vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives. Once you recognize the patterns of behavior that mark these relationships, you’ll be empowered to identify the vampires in your life too.

 

 

I finished reading this book and I am now reading another book from the best-selling author. This is my second book of the year and it is titled – Making Life Easy. It is a great read so far. I am seriously learning from Christiane Northrup, and I can’t wait to finish the book! It is filled up with wise words for healthy living on every page. A must read for every woman, if you ask me.

Making Life Easy

Here is a brief description of the book –

Dr. Northrup explores the essential truth that has guided her ever since medical school: our bodies, minds, and souls are profoundly intertwined. Making life flow with ease, and truly feeling your best, is about far more than physical health; it’s also about having a healthy emotional life and a robust spiritual life. When you view your physical well-being in isolation, life can become a constant battle to make your body “behave.” When you acknowledge the deep connection between your beliefs and your biology and start to tune in to the Divine part of yourself, it’s a whole new ballgame —and the first step in truly making your life easy.

 

 

I am looking forward to the 50 other books I will be reading on my Amazon Kindle this year. What are you reading? Are you doing the read 52 books a year challenge?

Happy World Book and Copyright Day

*Affiliate Links.

Today is World Book and Copyright Day. The kids wore their pyjamas to school and were super excited. It is all about reading some of their favourite books today, and they love reading, so you can imagine the excitement. At the moment, the twins’ favourite books are I am an Artist by Marta Altes and Max the Brave by Ed Vere. They would happily read them everyday if possible.

I am a lover of books myself. I love reading and I am currently challenging myself to read a book a week. It has been successful so far, I am a few days behind but I know I will catch up soon. I am currently reading – Why Love Matters: How affection shapes a baby’s brain by Sue Herhardt, on my Amazon Kindle. It is a great book with so much valuable parenting information. All parents should read it. It is a book I am learning a lot from. What are you reading?

 

World Book Day also known as International Day of the Book is an annual event the organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to promote reading, publishing, and copyright. It is amazing to have a day dedicated to reading, publishing and copyright. As a book lover, that is so important to me. The fact this day celebrates these important things is good as they are how I make my bread and butter.

Copyright Issues

I have had my own fair share of copyright issues. There were a few bold blog post thieves I had the misfortune of dealing with last year, which is why my blog content is now protected. You can’t copy anything on my blog with the copy and paste function. I had to get the plugin for that because many blog thieves were busy reproducing my content on their blogs. It was such a distressing time. I felt completely violated and the fact that these people had the audacity to steal my work was so frustrating.

Many of the blogs were reported and the content were taken down once I discovered them. I can’t understand why anyone would think it is okay to steal a blog post but then again we have all sorts of fraudsters around.
