It’s not meant to school anyone on racism or deliver a teaching moment.

7 Tips to Read More Books in 2021
I ended 2020 with more than 60 books read. On Instagram, on my blog, and on my podcast, I share what I’m reading. People always ask me how I can read so much. At the end of the day, it’s all about time management. I’m pretty good at managing my time, but I will also add that my husband stays at home and takes care of the kids so that takes some off my plate. If you don’t have a stay at home husband, you can still read a lot of books! He only started staying home in August of 2020 and by then I was finishing one book a week, so #noexcuses. I have a lot more I want to get to, and I’m sure you do too, so I’m sharing how I’m able to read so many books.
