If you're bored, Read a book #TheAlchemist

I think I'm part of the last generation who were told to "go read a book" if they ever complained about being bored. Tonight (Read: Saturday Night), I decided to crack open a book that had been collecting dust on my bookshelf since February.

I was originally gifted "The Alchemist" back in February during a gift exchange with some girlfriends, but hadn't taken the time to read it. I remember hearing great reviews from people, but I ended up enjoying the way the book thickened up my bookshelf more than having the desire to actually read it.

A blogger I follow (McKenzieRenae) recently posted about recognizing moments in your life that can serve as a "jumpstart" to something amazing. She recommended "The Alchemist" as a good book to read and I realized that was the same book that'd been sitting on my shelf for months.

Keeping it 100 -- This is the first book I've read in years and honestly, it made me excited to 1) Get through the whole thing in one night and 2) Actually read a book instead of watching Netflix/Hulu or wasting hours on the internet. I feel inspired to start reading more books again, so if you have any suggestions please send them this way! I've been fanning out over Mindy Kaling lately, so I think I may pick up her book "Why Not Me?" next.

My snazzy way of taking notes lol #StayWoke
