Watching TV and reading books are both sedentary activities, but reading engages your mind, awakes your imagination, and broadens your vocabulary. If you’re unhappy with how much time you spend in front of a screen—whether it’s a television, computer monitor, tablet, or smart phone—replacing a portion of that time with a good book will be highly rewarding. The world is loaded with interesting books.
Make a list of the books you want to read on your Monthly Index pages and start checking them off. If your list is too long for one page, use a set of alphabetized address phone tabs to keep your list organized. Or, pick up a set of customizable tabs and create a section in your planner for your book list. As you finish each book, note how well you enjoyed it with a rating system.
