I need to make an effort to read more books. One of my favourite pastimes is watching movies and great TV shows; the trouble is, that gets in the way of the enormous pile of books that I should be reading.

So, here’s what I think I should try and do. Every Monday, once the house is empty, I will spend several hours reading; by my reckoning, I should be able to read most books within that time frame.

From Monday, look out for a picture of the cover of the book that I am reading on that day. If I can consume as many books as I do movies and TV, I might improve my mental well-being.
