Sometimes I try to be a better person. Other times, I try to just keep on swimming.
  1. Slow my roll.
    I've been getting a bit too big for my britches lately. And grouchy.
  2. I really need to #readmyowndamnbooks
    That's a lot of books in the TBR
  3. I also need to work more on writing reviews as I finish books.
    Rather than "write it later" (which never works).
Since I'm keeping track of books bought in a different list, I figured I should try for a reasonable accounting of the numbers of books I've managed to make leave the house.
  1. Books donated to the Patients' Library at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics: 31
  2. Books donated to the Iowa City Public Library, trip 1: 11
    I have a giant tote bag full of books to donate, but it's too heavy to carry so the books are being taken in batches (bc last summer I had to make an appointment for a librarian to meet me and my 200+ books (and CDs and DVDs) with a cart).
  3. Books donated to the Iowa City Public Library, trip 2: 10
  4. Books dispersed at a book swap, 6, but I came home with 5, so net result: 1
In an effort to #readmyowndamn books, I'm going to write down the books I buy in 2016. The idea being to decrease the number of unread books in my house by not buying as many new ones. (I haven't thought through this very well, so I'll just try it and see if it works.) Note: this is paper books, not ebooks or comics; those are a separate wrinkle.
