Feeding the mind with reading

I used to read all the time growing up. It was something I loved to do – a good story or learning about something new. With time and life, it got away from me. A few years ago, I decided to start reading again, mostly to help my brain wind down from the day. That goal morphed into reading at least 50 books this year. Welp, I missed the mark and have read 88, with three more in progress to kick me over 90 books.

I’ll admit, 90% of my reading is/was audiobooks. Given the nature of farming, it just has worked well to listen to books while I work, doing chores, building fence and other tasks around the farm. But, I do enjoy the feel and experience of reading a book in hard copy.

My reading this year has been a mix of fiction, business, and health. My favorites, that I dove into deep and read the whole series to current, including the Walt Longmire (Cold Dish is the first book to start with) series by Craig Johnson and the Joe Picket series (Open Season is the first book to start with) by C.J. Box, both coincidently based in the same area of Wyoming with a mix of crime/law, Western culture, the outdoors and a bit of ranching.

I also enjoyed:

What have you been reading? I’m always looking for new ideas to add to my list!

P.S. I’ve been an avid podcast listener the last few years, but really wanted to take a break and focus on reading this last year. I have been dabbling back into podcast listing again more recently.
