    Wow! 90 books. I'm on Goodreads too so I will look for you. Or you can friend me! My goal this year is 48 books and I already met the goal. Mostly because I listen to audiobooks on my hour long commute and while doing chores!

    does sleeping count?? current health and fatigue levels aren’t helping me at the moment. Have plans to get back into other hobbies soon like my stamp collections and exhibitions I used to do in my younger years but those all take money I just don’t have right now and won’t til i’m working.

    I used to love to read but haven't been able to focus for awhile now. I used to watch very little TV but now I prefer to just veg out to some streaming series in my downtime.

    I love photography and even though it goes hand in hand with scrapping, it is to me a different hobby.

    I love planning and playing around my w/planner - decorating it/making my lists and meal plans and creating custom sticker sheets.

    I love trying new recipes.

    I love hiking and walking and kayaking and just being outside exploring in general.

    I love to read, but I've been spending all my time scrapping this year. I love to listen to podcasts, which also keeps me from reading! I enjoy playing in the handbell choir at my church. I help coach the elementary school spell bowl team where my daughter goes.

    I also enjoy planning in my planner. That makes up for the fact I don't do paper scrapping any more. I also enjoy making Christmas cards, and occasionally other cards.

    Writing has always been a big one, and video games. And writing about video games :-D I used to be big into sewing, cross stitch, and baking - when I got sick I had to give those things up, but I'm hoping to slowly work my way back to them. I miss it.

    Reading is another one illness stole from me, I was too foggy to get anything out of it but frustration. That's another one I hope to overcome when I can get a tablet. Reading e-books on my desktop just doesn't work very well, and it's all but impossible on a phone. But once I have it, hoo boy I have years of books to catch up on.

    Other than scrapping, I can't go a day without reading. I keep track of my books on goodreads and currently am on book #53 for this year so far. I read every morning and a bit throughout the day, usually finishing off a book within 4-10 days depending on how big the books are. I read them on my phone app so it can go everywhere with me. I read in line at the grocery store (especially Costco) or waiting for appointments. If my hubs is driving on a trip that takes longer than 30 minutes or so I usually read a few pages along the drive. I belong to two digital libraries plus have amazon books so never run out of reading material. I've been an avid reader since about the age of 8. Currently I am reading "Because You're Mine" by Rea Frey.

    When I had a souped-up 4x4 truck, I loved to just GO. Drive forestry trunk roads and disappear into the woods. Now I have a silly little SUV and I need to be more careful.
    I do a lot of mixed media art, journalling, canvases, etc. Like to get my hands dirty. I don't read, but always have books going in my car. I am on the highway a lot and actually go through tons of books that way.

    Genealogy is my other grand passion. And I am writing a book - I'm a historian, so it's not a novel, but it's a very compelling story.

    Digital planning on my iPad, card making, cross stitch, and genealogy. I can quilt...when I have time. I guess you can say I am an all around crafty person. I like making wreathes too.
