Thank goodness for my Kobo Glo!

Currently catching up on my reading…
It’s always a goal/motivation of mine to read a book a week regardless how hectic.

So far I am killing it! I just started a new job (yay) and due to lots of breaks between training I completed 4 books so far in the past week and a half.

Total Murakami fan here; currently reading Dance, Dance, Dance.
Thank goodness for books and beer calming my itchy nerves down from running around town.

But once I look past that, I want to go! Great getaway place and besides it’s in the Philippines! Why not? Seriously, everyone needs to visit Philippines at least once.
