At the weekend I set up this years reading challenge on Goodreads. I had to ask myself how many books did I think I could read in a year. Bearing in mind, work, family life, writing and of course, time spent here and other social networks!
Last year I set myself a challenge of 50 books. My ticker only shows 38 read books. I have a feeling that I may not have recorded every book I was reading, but I imagine, even with that, I have fallen short.
Is that stopping me setting the same target again this year? Absolutely not. I have a huge stack of books I want to read and the point in the word challenge, is it’s not a walk in the park. So 50 books it is. That’s less that one a week, which would seem doable, and it is. Some weeks I can read a couple of books. I already have. But others, I just find it harder and I get slower and it all goes to pot for a while. New Year, new motivation, longer lasting!
