In March, my husband and I signed up for our “local” (see: nearest) YMCA gym membership. We have access to some amazing resources: pool, sauna (which I will never use because dry heat nauseates me), fitness centre, and a giant gymnasium to play Pickle Ball in. (Nope. I don’t know either.) I love the voyeuristic nature of What’s In My Bag videos and blog posts, that I thought it would be fun to show you dear reads what’s in my gym bag.
I’ve recently discovered the T5W prompts. As a reader and book blogger and part-time booktuber, I have had several of these prompts tickle my interests. They are a great way to discuss books in a more general way, and swap ideas and recommendations without giving too much away. Today I wanted to talk about my Top 5 Unread Authors, one of the more popular T5W prompts.
As you may have heard, April is National Poetry Month! I have been rifling through my own collection to find entire anthologies, or specific works, by Canadian poets. I’ve decided to share my collection (as well as a particularly sneaky library book) with you today, to celebrate #CanLit Poetry!
In case you missed it, back in February I shared some analysis on my 2014 reading habits. I’ve set myself the challenge of reading 75 books this year, which may seem like a huge step up from the 46 I read last year, but watch the video to hear why I think this is a good idea.
What are some of your reading habits? Which ones do you want to change, or encourage, this year?
