And it’s week #3 of reading 3 books in a week! I’m so excited that I’m continuing on with this trend!
I saw this audiobook on the Libby app and it intrigued me so I ended up listening to it and found it interesting. I didn’t agree with all of it (the author is pretty anti-grains and I find that grains make me feel so much better!), but I found many of her thoughts insightful and I actually felt really encouraged by it to realize how healthy I feel and that I’m not experiencing most of the the signs of hormone issues that she mentions in the book.
(I just recently downloaded the Libby app and am loving it. It’s like a modern version of Overdrive. It’s free and you can “check out” audiobooks and ebooks from your library through it. They have a pretty wide selection and I think I won’t run out of audiobooks to listen to for a very long time. Here are 8 ways to get audiobooks for free.)
So, full confession, I haven’t read a lot of books by C.S. Lewis, but I picked this book up because my friend, Jamie, was reading it and she encouraged me to read it, too. It’s a collection of various essays by C.S. Lewis on a variety of topics.
I read it really slowly because I struggled to really comprehend what many of the essays meant. And I think that I still didn’t get a lot of it. But it was good to challenge myself to read something that was stretching and I really enjoyed parts of it and other parts made me think in a good way.
This is a beautiful, short book that I really enjoyed. I picked it up for free from My Reader Rewards and didn’t have any expectations for it, but ended up really loving it. Have you read it?
When I Find Time to Read
People are always asking me how I find time to read. Honestly, it’s because I love to read, because I’ve chosen to prioritize it, because I don’t have a lot of other hobbies, and because I can’t not read. Also, when you love something, you usually can find ways to get creative to find time to fit it in — even if it’s in the little nooks and crannies of life.
I wrote a post on 3 ways to find more time to read — even when life is busy. And here are 7 more ways to find time to read.
