I’m typing from the humid-rainy-hot Singapore. If this is your first issue: welcome! 
I’d like to try and convince you to use Goodreads today. It’s a reading social network where you can keep a reading list, see what others are reading and track your progress. I only started using it seriously at the end of 2015, and here’s what happened: 
Books read in 2015: 17 (5k pages)
Books read in 2016: 94 (29k pages)
Books read in 2017: 4 
Just like Beyoncé’s, my days have 24 hours. I have no idea how you can become like Queen B - but here’s an idea to read more books: start tracking how much you read! 
Plus, Goodreads is awesome to discover new books. Curious? Click here and connect with me. 
Have a great week ahead, 

Travel hack* of the week - How to get off an airplane faster
Step 1. Leave your bag in the overhead compartment 5 or more rows ahead. Yes, seriously. Who’s going to touch your bag while you’re in the same plane? Nobody. This allows you to stand up and sprint as soon as the seatbelt sign is off. 
Step 2. Learn how to raise the armrest on the aisle. In 9/10 cases there’s a lever below the armrest. If you push or slide it it, you can raise the armrest. This allows you to stand up and go without hurting your femur.
