This year, I’ve joined the Goodreads Reading Challenge with a goal to read 20 books. It doesn’t sound like a lot, in fact, it’s around one every 2 1/2 weeks. Easy, right?
Well, considering I only managed 10 books last year, I will be pushing myself.
The thing is, I’m not a slow reader. I’m actually quite a fast reader. But I just don’t allow myself as much reading time as I could. Or should. There’s always other things to be done; be it writing, housework, parenting, trying to catch up with the TV shows steadily filling up my Sky+ box.
So, along with this reading challenge, I’m also setting a resolution to allow myself more reading time. That means, more me time. More quiet time. More relaxing time. What bliss!
I’m kicking off this year with Sarah Lotz’s The Three. Maybe I’ll end the year with the sequel. But I have a more than healthy to-be-read pile, so I won’t be spoilt for choice.
What are you hoping to read this year?
