I spend a lot of time sitting and nursing my baby these days. Kip eats approximately eight times every 24 hours (give or take) and nurses for 15-20 minutes each time. That adds up to two or two-and-a-half hours each day that I’m just sitting! It’s really easy for me to use that time to scroll through Facebook and Instagram (not at all an entirely bad thing and I still do it sometimes) but it just doesn’t feel like the best use of my time overall.
I haven’t used my Kindle in a couple months because I’ve been reading hard copy books recently so I pulled it out and charged it up last week to have ready next to my nursing chair! I’m amazed at how fast I can fly through books when I use those little snippets of time each day. To be fair, I cannot bring myself to read in the middle of the night because - HELLO I’M NOT AWAKE ENOUGH, but most other feedings I’m reading!
I wanted to share the books that are currently on my list - I’m not setting a goal this year per se, but I’m keeping a supply of hard copy, digital, and audio books handy so I can make reading more of a priority in those little minutes of time I have here and there, especially while nursing my son!
I’d love to hear what you’re reading right now!
