After moving in to our new house, my husband and I decide to skip out on hanging a TV in our bedroom. We found that sometimes we would put on ‘just one more episode’ and find ourselves staying up later. Then, because of the stimulation from the TV, we wouldn’t fall asleep as easily. We both like to read and have been using time before bed to read and wind down. I charge my phone in the bathroom, so it’s not next to me in bed (except on the weekends) to distract me and keep me up. I really have noticed such a positive difference in doing this. Plus, it’s given me more time to get through some books I’ve had on my reading list for so long!
Lately I have been reading Anthony Bourdain’s book Kitchen Confidential and I absolutely love it. My husband finished reading it and immediately passed it over to me. We were both such big fans and you can hear his voice as he writes. It’s also so interesting! I worked in the food industry for over ten years, so it’s interesting to be brought back to those days and to learn more about the industry from a chef’s perspective. I am such a big foodie, so hearing about the inner workings is very interesting to me. I highly recommend it!
I’ve bought a few other books that I plan to start soon as soon, so I thought it would be fun to share some of those and the others on my spring reading list with you all today!
