The Friday Five

March 26, 2021 in


Happy Friday, Mes Amies! We have not done a “Friday Five” in a few weeks.  When I saw that this one was all about books, I knew that I wanted to partake. I love the written word. I love real books. No shade to kindals or other e-readers. Its just I want less screen time for myself, not more.  Without further adu….

1)      1) Have you read more books, or fewer books, this past year than usual?

WAY more. I realized that I was wasting precious hours each and everyday on social media. Social media that was becoming more toxic by the day. Non stop political rantings, non-stop political fights, “huns” trying to shill their MLM products, people fighting over covid, people fighting over masks... It all has left such a bad taste in my mouth.

My time is precious. I’m no longer going to use it being a witness to that nonsense.

The time I used to spend on- line, is now (some) of the time I spend reading.


2)      2)What book are you reading now (or what book did you read most recently)?

“How To Do The Work”  by Dr. Nicole LePera. The quarantine of 2020 presented me with a call to consciousness. I started reading all of the self-help books I could get my hands on, I started journaling , I started listing to self improvement podcasts.

To say the very least, I’ve become committed to becoming my highest self.

3)      3)What is the best book you read in the past few years?

“Fire Fly Lane” by Kristin Hannon. I could barely put it down.


4)     4) Do you read more than one book at a time, or just one?

Typically, just one. However, the exception is “The Great Gatsby. I’ve read that one numerous times.



5)     5) How big is your to-be-read pile (or list)?

I have 5 or 6 books on my night stand just waiting.


There you have it! Are you a reader? If so, please show me your answers too.

Have a safe and beautiful weekend!
