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?
