In an effort to start reading more, I downloaded the Kindle app on my phone a few months ago with a goal to knock out at least one book a month and continue with my RNR series here on the blog where I review a book each month.

It’s almost like having your own personal tour guide without the rush and feeling like you need to be a part of a tour group. I discovered the GPSMyCity app last year and was so excited to find so many cities to choose from (over 600 cities)!
