Blogmas 2019 | How I Read Multiple Books in One Month

Hello, fellow readers! Today I am sharing some tips for you to read more books in a month. I work full-time as a teacher and I am married, so my time is limited, especially certain times of year (December and May) when our schedule is full with other commitments at night or on weekends.

These tips will help you find some hidden reading time in your schedule and hopefully help you read more during the month!
