I couldn’t handle today, so I escaped to read.

I read 2 books today. Last year, I read 9 total.

They were both short and both amazing — “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown and “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie.

Why am I sharing this? Because yesterday and today, everything has been garbage in America, and I don’t have the mental energy to process it all yet, and I know I can’t be the only one.

For a few days, Twitter and Facebook are going to be endless doomscrolls that make me want to vomit and/or cry, so I’m taking care of my mental health by reading.
