2016 Reading Challenge!

IMG_0769A friend posted this recently on their Facebook page. I saved it because I thought it was a great idea…I love reading but I can’t honestly remember the last book I read. I use the excuse I haven’t  got the time but really,  I could make the time…couldn’t I?

I call myself ‘an active relaxer’ – I bake, I knit, I sew, I cook, I clean! 🙂 so sitting still and reading will require a conscious approach but I am going to give it a go. 2016 is the year !

In fact, I bought a book at the Auckland International Airport last April 2015 to read on the plane…never did…it travelled to Melbourne & back and has sat on my desk gathering dust ever since.

Picnic in Provence by Elizabeth Bard – a delicious memoir, with recipes it says on the front cover 🙂 just 355 pages, it will my first book from the challenge – A Book Set in Another Country. 

Is anyone else up for this challenge. Be warned. It requires you to put yourself first, an put your feet up! No distractions…will you make the time?

Happy reading

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
