I started a new job in May. Not just a new job, a complete change in career, moving from classroom teaching to working mostly from home as a content strategist for a big financial company.
Of course, that set everything else in my life topsy-turvy, too--from what time I get up in the morning, to when I do my creative writing, to what I eat for lunch, when and how I exercise, and of course, how much and what I read.
Looks like I haven't written about my reading life since June! Unusual for me--since I usually do a monthly round-up of what I've been reading.
As of today, I'm 2 books behind on my reading challenge (I always make a goal of 52 books a year, one per week). Not too bad considering all the changes in my life.

I'm still reading primarily on audiobook (either on Audible or Chirp), on Kindle, or on audiobook with reference to the ebook edition, depending on whether I expect to want to take notes. Paper books continue to be difficult for me because of arthritis and eyesight. Another reason to love being a 21st century girl--my limitations don't have to constrain my reading.
