Well, I am definitely slacking for the first half of the year for reading. I SHOULD have been between six & nine books finished by now. I haven’t gotten that done, not at all. Not really even close. I’ve finished three books. And a little under 1/2 of the way through a fourth.
It’s not that I haven’t tried to read more over the past six months. It’s just that sometimes the day / week got away from me. I always had every intention to pick up a book or my phone for an ebook but sometimes it just never happened. Sometimes I quite easily picked up that book. Other times I had to force myself into reading.
I mean I always WANT to read, I absolutely love reading. Always have, always will. But sometimes the motivation and energy isn’t always there. Yes it’s just picking up a book, reading words, and flipping pages. Even then, sometimes you just don’t have the energy to do that.
But, point being. Over the next six months I have to pick up the slack in hopes that I make it to my goal of 18 books. Only 15.5 to go right?
Since I did a book challenge for the end of last year, I decided to do another one for this year. But not for each individual month. As the year as a whole. I am going to try to read at least 18 books (or more) in the next 12 months.
That would average out at 1.5 books a month if everything works out well for me. Which should be fairly simple, in theory at least. But here’s to hopin right?
I’m only going to be doing a couple posts for the challenge as an “update” of sorts. So a half way through the year, and a year’s end post.
Well I didn’t read as much as I had wanted to. I had read the half a book that I needed to finish. I never got around to a second book. I was too busy trying to catch up on tv shows I was behind on, and a few other things.
I definitely did well with my reading this month. Finished three and a half books. Read a lot more than I thought I was going to. I will be attempting to finish the other half of the book I am working on and a second book on top of that as well next month.
Ok, yes I know this is a few days late. So sorry!! Got busy.
I finally finished that book I had been trying to read for the past few months. It was actually really good. I enjoyed it.
I started to read a second book. Didn’t get very far.
Ok so technically I did read an entire book this month. It was an ebook, but it was still a book. So goal completed.
The other paperback book that I was trying to read I still barely got into. I once again will be using it towards next month because I know I won’t be finishing before the end of the day.
If you could live in any decade, which one would you choose and why?
It would have to be a technology driven one. I think everything is made easier with technology. Plus technology helps you to be healthy / in ways to help your health in so many ways. Really though, there is so much that you can use it for that makes your life so much easier. I don’t think I would be able to survive in a time where technology isn’t available the way it is. Obviously it has advanced a lot compared to when I was growing up.
As much as I would like to say a specific decade I can’t. Because I don’t have an exact decade I would like to choose at the moment.
