Find me on Instagram!! @booksandloststories

Hello Everyone,

As some of you know I have an extensive collection of old books–the pic above is only one shelf of four. 😂. They are so beautiful, and the ones I’ve read have stayed with me for years, so I started a little Instagram blog called, ‘Books and Lost Stories.’

I recently got a book deal so I’m amping up my social media game. I’m not a natural at it. I hate the idea of promoting myself, but I do have things to say and things to share which I think will brighten the world and inspire those who might feel lost sometimes. So I’m forcing myself to get out of my comfort zone.

I share each post of my books on WordPress just to spread the inspiration. I’ve been at it for a week, so far I have 31 followers–womp, womp. But I’m happy for the 31! Come follow me there! Instagram is a great way to get a (somewhat) real sense of who a person is behind the words and obscure photos. I always follow anyone who follows me. Thank you!!

  1. What and where is your favorite time to read? I love reading but between the “daily must-do’s” and the constantly happening interruptions (never anticipated of course), finding time to read is driving me crazy! We had a house fire in 2014 and it took everything – my books, my music, family photos, memories, crafts you name it – all gone. Since then finding time to read again has been hard. I keep trying different things only to find I seem to complete just have a book. I have several started but just can’t get it together to finish. Granted, my favorites to read are how-to’s and part of my issue is stopping to try something out; but I then get angry at myself for getting side-tracked and not completing. HELP (if you can)!

    1. Wow! Sorry to hear about that! If you’re still experiencing grief from losing your pictures and possessions it’s probably hard to concentrate. I like to read in the morning before anyone else is awake, say 5:30 am is a good time for me. Once the day gets going I get distracted with mundane chores. I just finished reading the Bible, which took about an hour each morning for Bible study. It set me back on my frivolous book reading. Now I’m finished, I can get back into reading novels and nonfiction books at top speed again. Though I did enjoy centering myself in scripture every morning, first thing. 🙂
