So It Begins

I started reading my first book of the new year last night. I know what it takes to reach my goal. I just have to actually do it.

A few years ago in the midst of my busiest semester in college I came closest to hitting my annual target of 50 books. I read 44 even though I had several calendar months of no reading at all.

I know the simplest way to look at a 50 book goal is essentially to read a book a week for the duration of the year. That’s the easy way, but unrealistic for me. No matter how much I read, I know there are going to be blank periods. It’s just how I am. My focus is to read as much as I can during my active periods because a down one is around the corner.

What’s your reading goal for this year and is it the same every year?

  1. No reading goals, but for the record, I usually have about 3 books I’m reading at the same time and usually read about 5-10 pages a day…just a little each day to fill the void

  2. That’s impressive. I’ve set a target of 25 this year, which is quite ambitious for me.
