To Kill a TBR… What’s On Your List?

If you are a book-lover like me, then you can relate – there are so many books and so little time. Listening to audiobooks on 1.5x speed can only help so much. Any faster and I literally start to panic. When I see a book that I want to read, I know it will be a while before I can get to it, so I like to pop the book on my TBR list.

It is part of an effort to be more intentional and create the life I want to have rather than just letting life happen to me.
