It's been a busy month. We got back from our big trip to Paris and Dubai around January 13 (I'll have to post pictures!). Then we immediately started moving from our rental house to the house we bought at the end of December. So it was weeks of packing, moving, and now unpacking. Our new house is about 30 minutes from the old one, so I was doing a lot of driving back and forth.
Things are a bit calmer now although it will be awhile before we're fully settled into this new house. Years perhaps, since we're going to buy furniture a bit at a time.
I actually haven't been reading at all. Since the beginning of the year, I've only finished one book and that was an audiobook. I finally got back into a book today, for the first time in weeks. It's a lovely feeling.
One of the things I noticed when packing and unpacking it what a large percentage of the books I own that I haven't read. The vast majority. This wasn't a surprise to me, but having to pick up each book to pack it, stick the boxes in my car, pick up each book to unpack it, and then again to arrange it on the bookshelves reinforced this sad fact.
Here are my books before I put them into my bookshelves:
