How to (re)establish a reading practice, plus book club chat with Amy Clark of the Book Gang Podcast

Do you think of yourself as a lapsed reader? Maybe you look back longingly to the days when you were always tied up in a book (or three) and wonder where all your former reading time goes. Here are some words that may reassure you: if you love books, you’re still a reader! It may just take some time to get back to thinking of yourself that way. In the thick of early motherhood I lost touch with my readerly self, but as my kids have gotten older I’ve found new ways to re-incorporate time with books into my life.

In this episode I share three habits, rituals, and mindsets that have helped me re-establish a strong reading practice. I also share a conversation with Amy Clark of the Mom Advice Book Club about why it’s never too late to get back to reading, how to motivate yourself and keep going, and the power of reading communities.

Featured Tea: Harney & Sons White Christmas Tea

This delicate, yet flavorful white blend features strong cardamom plus hints of almond and vanilla for a festive holiday favorite. I let water come to a boil then cool for about a minute; steep for 2-3 minutes, and serve it straight up.
