required reading

In a perfect world I'd find more time to read the news. Between the Portlandia skit "Did you read it?" and living with a boy who has somehow read every piece of literature pertaining to... everything... ever written, I am developing a bit of a complex about my reading habits and apparent lack of intellectual curiosity. It's a good day - amazing day - when I can read all my email. And by the time I finish doing that, the chances that I'm going to sit down and go in search of more reading material are very slim. Or, if I do, lets be honest. I'm going to read Game of Thrones. But this is unacceptable! I am a business owner and an adult. I should at least be reading news that pertains to my profession. So, I think I'm going to make a resolution about resolutions - new ones for each month. This month (I cant believe its almost February) it will be my February resolution to start finding time each week to read the news.

  • If there was a “Biggest Guilty Pleasure Ever Award” Game of thrones would win it hands down.

  • I am in love with this print and the sentiment behind it. I suppose if I were her, I would be reading from a laptop (my professional reading is the Chronicle of Higher Education). Thank you for this reminder at the start of the week!

  • love the concept of a new resolution each month – it reminds me of “the happiness project” (something else for you to read, lol) . glad you have your priorities straight with game of thrones tho, one of the best series i’ve ever read!

    • diane @ a spot of whimsy
  • Big Game of Thrones fan here at least the show. Haven’t read the books yet. Anyway love this illustration, especially the detail on the WWD and the chair.
