I finally finished It. It only took me three weeks and three days. I liked the story of It. I thought going in the book was about a killer clown. OMG, it was so much more than that. Also, not as scary as I recall the original movie. I mean, I was like 10 when it came out (aging myself here). My biggest issue was the length. I believe that King could have gotten the major themes across in half the pages. 

After It, I also finished The Negative by Ansel Adams. I much preferred The Camera. I think it’s because I don’t actually develop my own film anymore. There were some great tips, but it was a bit harder of a read.

After those two heavier books, I wanted a quicker read, so I started Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs. Library of Souls is the third book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children. I thought this book wrapped up the story nicely. Although, now two more books have been added to the series (my understanding was it was meant as a three-book series).

I need to work on my mental game with distance running, so I picked up How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald. I haven’t finished it yet, but so far I am enjoying it. I’ll give more details next month after I finish.

I’m still struggling to fit in reading while working from home. How do you find time to read without a commute?
