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.
Ok. So on the 18th I finished my first book of the month, and started a second one. Technically I probably could and would have finished the book faster by a week or so, but I had a few days where I didn’t read a single page. So that made me take a little bit longer. I had the book 3/4 finished in about a week and a half.
The second book I had started the night I finished the first one. Didn’t read that much that night. Ended up reading about 2/3 of the book the following day though. Then basically finished it the day after that. That was still with just over a week left in the month.
So I decided to start another book.
Which I couldn’t really get into at the time. And only read about 15 pages of in the rest of the month. That means it will be the book I will be trying to finish next month.
