My 2019 in Books

I made a commitment a couple years ago to read more. I did this for a few reasons. First, I had a lot of books I’d been wanting to read. Two, I spent (spend) way too much time online. Three, I had purchased a used Kindle Paperwhite a couple months prior and wanted to actually use it!

I committed to 15 books in 2018 and again in 2019 just to keep myself reading without the pressure of completing a challenge. I ended up reading 41 books in 2019! To be fair, some of them were pretty short books (quick productivity reads, mostly on the Kindle). Still, I was floored and proud of my progress. Plus, I got to read some really good books.

Project 365

In case you’re new around here, I do this little thing called a “Project 365“. You can find all my photos from this year (2019) on with the #project365 tag.

Note: I recently moved to using for blogging because it’s such a simple interface and uses Markdown. I’ll likely keep it … but we’ll see.

Every year I have friends ask if I’m still going to do one next year. Turns out 2019 was the fourth year I’ve done a Project 365. Daaaang. So at this point, it’s such a habit for me, I’m not sure I can stop. So, I thought I’d share my past projects and my “process” in case anybody else wants to join me. (more…)
