November 19: Changes In My Reading Life
I actually read fiction books.
For the six years (and a good while after) I was studying, I just didn’t have the time or energy for reading fiction novels. I read a lot of non-fiction and an awful lot of fanfiction, but missed out on actual books. I’ve still got plenty to catch up on and discover!
I listen to a lot of audiobooks.
Partly this is because of how convenient they are for fitting in as much reading time as possible (out walking, driving etc.) and part is that I listen to and edit material for visually impaired people at work, so I’ve become pretty comfortable taking in spoken information at higher speeds.
I use my local public library.
Since I moved last year I’ve gotten really into using my local library. Our last one was dismal, but I love the selection and passion in out local area now. They have great SFF and inclusive YA sections. I’ve even joined the monthly book club, something I never thought I’d do.
