Get ready to expand your library—your graphics library that is! Today’s freebie is inspired by a Designs By Miss Mandee reader request, and one that I find personally endearing because of my great love for reading. Use this cute reading clip art to decorate your own bookmarks, create a school-themed scrapbook page, or add one of these adorable reading animals to your next design just for fun!
When I thought of doing a reading-themed graphics set, I knew I had to include some cute woodland animals. Those little guys are by far my favorite part of this clip art group!
Like I said, and I’ve mentioned before, I LOVE to read. Reading is my absolute favorite way to relax and have “me-time.” Last year, I started using Goodreads to get recommendations and track the books I finished. Personally, I found it really useful, and I’ve loved reading reviews when I finish a book to see if other people felt the same way about plot points, characters, etc.
At the beginning of the year, I set a goal to read 24 books. Then March rolled around, and I was already half-way there (I was a reading machine at the start of the year); so, I decided to up my goal to 40 books. I am pleased to report that I surpassed my goal: completing a total of 43 books in the year 2016 (yippee)! And, thanks to Goodreads, I know that those books totaled over 20,000 pages, each one having an average page length of 465 pages (pretty cool)!
Anyway, this post probably sounds really braggy, sorry. I just wanted to share my excitement for reaching one of my 2016 goals. I’ll also be working toward the same goal in 2017, so I’ll need you guys to keep me accountable!
For all my fellow reading fanatics, I hope you enjoy the new, hand drawn reading clip art! What was your favorite read of 2016?
P.S. Just in case you are interested, here is a snapshot of some of the books I read last year (most of which fall into the YA category, I know…don’t judge me).
