A lot has happened in the past few weeks, asides from moving into our new place, and I thought I would do a little summary blog touching on a couple of the updates in my #publishingpostgrad life.
Another short round up as I simply haven't had time to read as much as I would like to. Although I'm proud that I've only fallen one book behind in my GoodReads challenge. In March, I read Girls Will Be Girls and Harry Potter and the Prisoner and Azkaban and I've made a good dent in All The Bright Places.
Honestly, I mostly only read books by women. It's never been an active decision but I love reading female voices and I studied gender issues a lot in my undergraduate degree so my bookshelves are filled with more or less exclusively female authors. However, for the sake of International Women's Day, I'm going to do a top ten of some of my personal favourite books by women.
This February Reading Round Up blog will be short and sweet because I only managed to read a grand total of ONE book in February (Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert on audiobook). My Read More, Worry Less philosophy has taken a back seat to University and work because I'm making a book and a magazine. I'm one book behind schedule in my GoodReads challenge but I'm confident I'll catch up in March.
If you follow me on Twitter, you'll have seen that I recently attended a couple of #DigitalGarage sessions ran by Google in Glasgow. These workshops are free to attend and are part of a larger project that Google is working on to get people feeling more confident about online marketing.
This is the last time I'll post homeware inspiration on The Fourth Month now that I have transitioned to only literary and publishing related posts. However, I saved a real good 'un for last!
Change is scary but it is also fun and very necessary. When I first started studying publishing, we were told that publishers have to be leaders of change so I've tried to embrace the changes I've faced in the past six months rather than be lead by them. A new home, new friends, new chapters in my relationship and my career.
