It's been a good year for reading so far. How do I know this? Goodreads told me:
You know you're reading a lot when social media sites are telling you to increase your yearly reading goal :)
So here's my updated goal:
45 books! Last year (when my goal was 20 and I managed 24) this would have seemed impossible, but it's been a good year for reading. I'm learning to skim a bit when books are boring (a difficult but worthwhile skill for me) and that prevents me from wasting precious time on so-so books. And in respect to the authors, I only do it when the situation is dire. I'm also sticking firmly to reading only books I want to read, and not giving in to the books I feel I ought to read.
Here are a few of the books I'm considering to fill the 8 spots I need to make it to 45:
Writing Down the Bones (which I just started)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The Fault in Our Stars
Let's Pretend This Never Happened
The Angel's Game
Life of Pi
The Tipping Point
Do you have a reading goal this year?
