June Reading Wrap Up

June was a pretty good reading month for me. I read some books which were on my May TBR and few other books which were not on any of my earlier TBRs. I just picked whatever caught my fancy. I read a total of 9 books but most of them were small in size.

Here are the books that I read in June –

Minimalism: Part 4 (Time Management)

When I read books about organization and minimalism, I was mostly focusing about space. It was only when the author in Organization from Inside Out spoke about time did I realize that I need to also organize my calendar. I should minimize time spent on unnecessary activities while focusing more on my long term goals.

I read plenty of books on time management recently and this post will be talking about all such books.

April Reading Wrap Up

April wasn’t such a good reading month for me. I went on vacation, work got really busy to the point of giving me headaches (literally) and I spent a lot of time outside basking in the spring sun. After the terrible winter, I was happy to be able to go to parks and do some outdoor activities. I enrolled my kid in a soccer class and evenings are spent either there or in the park. Because of this, my reading time got cut short. I am also trying to sleep early these days so that I can wake up early in the morning.

I went on a trip to Portland and got to visit Powell’s Bookstore, which is considered world’s biggest bookstore. I will have a detailed post up on that bookstore along with some pics. I bought three books there. See how good I am getting these days at resisting myself? Few years back, I would have bought 13 books from a bookstore that huge and amazing. Now I have developed a lot of self control. I read two out of these three books in April.

These are the books I read in Feb –

Minimalism : Part 2 (Organize)

If you have not already read my earlier post on Minimalism, please read it here. In my previous post on this topic, I talk about the books that got me into minimalism and what I learnt from each of those books.

From last few years, I have been trying to downsize my belongings and trying actively to buy less. I have not been completely successful but I am heading in the right direction. I cleaned all the rooms and got rid of all the junk at home last year. Having gotten rid of everything that was not bringing me joy, I am now mostly left with stuff that bring me joy.
