As that’s all I’ve been thinking about lately.

  • How to squeeze reading time intothe working week?
  • How to keep posting on my beloved blog while managing other things?
  • When do I find time to take photos for my blog now it gets dark so early?

I came up with few solutions (that I will be myself using as well, because the pile of books on my nightstand is getting terrifyingly tall and I fear it will fall on me in my sleep!
