On the to-do list for today but didn't happen, again: @freddieharrel
On the to-do list for today but didn't happen, again: sitting in this little corner and read!! I keep buying books I'm too excited to read, I start lots of them but sometimes don't finish them for a while 🙈 when do you guys read? How many books a month do you read? I'm tempted to set myself a daily reminder to read 15mns 😎💪🏾 lots of room on my list, to start or to finish 😅or to read again: Sapiens, The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla, Why I'm no longer talking to white people about race by @renieddolodge who I'm so lucky I met at #Wilderness, very poignant book that everyone should pick up but I'll tell you more on that soon 😊, The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks (classic I keep reading!) - so, any tips for a bookworm wannabe like me? Who's reading what? 🤘🏾 #WallsOfTheHarrels • • #homedecor #homesweethome #homedesign #homeinterior #interiors #interiordesign #instahome @freddieharrel

I set myself the goal of reading atleast an hour everyday. The 15mins reminder is a good place to start. I recently wrote a blog post on my reading. Currently I am reading Pachinko by Min jin Lee. The good immigrant is on my tbr...have heard great things about it.

@jjooyycc really good of you 🤓 @osborne.kayleigh STORY of my life! Are we meant to keep on buying them? I do, I'm slowly catching up but I'm getting there 😁 @juh_neese @dubietoa taking nooootes thanks ladies 🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️

I usually do three or four a month! Goodreads is my favorite way to keep it all organized so DEFINITELY join if you haven't already. I usually read on my daily commutes and if a book is good/I can't get enough I'll sneak in a page or two (hundred 🙃) before bed. I'm sure that gets harder when you're running your own business and taking care of that beautiful baby boy, but maybe audiobooks as a way to get you back on track without needing too much sitting idle time. Hope this helps and hope to see more from what you're reading soon!

I'm the same. Love to read but really?? With two small boys it's so hard to ring the time. Enter audio books 🙌

Oh! And currently reading "Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection" by Sharon Salzberg (because it KEPT coming up on my social feeds), "A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life" by Ayelet Waldman (in an old list of recommendations from Elle), and "Soul Mates: Honouring the Mysteries of Love and Relationship" 🤗

I like to read just before bedtime when everyone is sleeping and house is quiet. Depending on how tired I am, I catch up on a few pages. Am a multiple book reader too... according to my mood... what my soul craves and yearns to learn or read at the time... happy reading!!! Ohh and I admire your energy beautiful soul

What a fantastic reading spot! I have a long commute so have a couple of hours of reading time a day. Currently have a wonderful collection of poems by @pamwasimba called Rainbow Soul and A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee....both page turners but I am pacing myself with Rainbow Soul so I can savour it...a few pages at a time!

Have you read Americanah by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie? Book of the year, maybe my life!

My last book was Americanah by Ngozie Adichie. So far this year I have read 6 books that's got nothing to do with the day job lol. Ordered my next yesterday from amazon and fingers crossed I get it tomorrow. Always excited to read [been lacking lately]

@freddieharrel "100 years of solitude " by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The best book I have ever read!! Absolutely loved it and still read it from time to time.

The good immigrant is such a good read! One you should definitely finish- it's worth it x

Currently reading The Power of Neuroplasticity, Swing Time, Ayurveda and the Mind and Creating Money: Attracting Abundance. Someone once told me books are patient so don't feel bad for starting one and putting it down to start another😅

I'm currently reading Sapiens on the commute but it's a slow one. I got the follow up Homo Deus and Swing Time waiting in the wings...that my next three months sorted 😂

I'm trying to read an hour a day, but used timer when I started doing this. In a couple of months it's getting easier & easier. The truth is less time for social media — more time to read.

Audio books were my saving grace for long commutes in the car. Now I use them all the time. When I'm cooking, doing housework, in the bath. I "read" so many books this way.

Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a must read. In fact, any book (or Ted Talk!) by Chimamanda is a winner. I just got 100 Years of Solitude...heard great things about it, + I'm nearly at the end of The Good Immigrant. Happy reading. xx

Loved audio books when I had a longer commute for work. I recently recommened The Bluest Eye to someone & it made me want to re-read it! Just purchased Milk & Honey and looking forward to that.

Why I'm No longer talking to White People about Race @renieddolodge ... yassss so GOOD!!!!! Read it so quickly and loved every moment 😍

Just finished Sapiens (incredible!) and onto the follow up Homo Deus. The @renieddolodge book is waiting in my table too though! Easy cheat is promising yourself you'll read 10 pages a day. It's so simple that it's hard to make an excuse for and it gets me into a space where I usually carry on and read much more! X

"Women Who Run With The Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes is life changing !!!! I never finish reading books 😂but this little gem requires taking time to read leaving it alone letting it weave through your being ahhhhh so perfect . Then knowing at the right time as if by magic it's time to explore the book again . 💕

No more guilt 😅 @ij3oma it's so big it's scary 😂 @motherhood_rx oh wow I couldn't keep up 🙈 @akasmartass I use timer for work so should do that for reading too! Brilliant tip! @barbarajane66 @yes_cloclo I miss too much info I get distracted 😭 @miss_jannine oh yes 10 pages I can do!! 😂

Love your little reading spot @freddieharrel :). It's tough getting daily reading in. Don't know how Warren Buffet does it! I'm juggling The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Meet The Dreamers (Imbolo Mbue)

Great to meet you @wildernesshq Freddie - thanks for visiting our bookshop! We find going to bed half an hour earlier or giving yourself a goal to read a chapter a night is a good habit to make 😀
