Reading for the summer 

I didn’t realise the power of a daily routine until the time I sat down to jot down this list in excel. 

After reading so many reading list type blog posts in my social media newsfeed, I decided to collate my reading so far. Here’s the list. A significant increase from the past and all because of two decision made in January.

A daily reading habit for 30 minimum minutes and no TV in the evening.
