The Picky Bookworm

"Books are a uniquely portable magic." –Stephen King

We all wish we could spend all day every day reading, right? I know I do! But Life gets in the way.

I recently had to learn 5 (Yeah, you heard right, FIVE) new jobs to do from home. My company had to put some people on furlough and I had to learn how to do those jobs.

I love learning new things, but trust me, 4 days of training was NOT enough! I’m thrilled to have job security, and be able to help (I’m a 2 on the Enneagram, so I LOVE to help!), but I allowed myself to get a little stressed. Not to mention, I hated that I had less time to read!

I’m sure you all can relate, huh?

I’m hoping to make this blog a viable business eventually (with my own website, and everything!), so being able to post regularly is important to me. When I was unable to do that, it bothered me.

Life gets in the way.

What do I do when Life throws a curve ball? Do I sweat it?


I had a nice long talk with my supervisor, and we agreed that I can only do what I can do. Believe me, if I could do more than I could do, it would be a major feat!

Here’s the funny thing, though. What I was worried about? Never happened. Not only am I able to write this lovely little conversational piece, I’m caught up on work! So not only was I stressing myself out over nothing, I still have quiet time while my husband sleeps to READ! Heaven on earth, y’all!


So what am I reading?

Well, I’m still trying to get through A Tale of Two Cities, which is slow but steady, and I have two new books I got from Netgalley that I’m really excited about. One is a thriller/horror called The Sleepover, and the other is a Christian self-help called Lead Like a Woman. I’m excited to share both of those with you soon!

Have you noticed a reading slump because of this work from home business? How did you get out of it?

What books are you currently reading? I’d love to hear what you think! Drop a link below if you have a blog you think I’ll like, and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram or Facebook!

Also, I’d love to have you as a follower at The Picky Bookworm! I love making new friends!

Until Next Time, Bookworms!
