Hands up if you have a good reads challenge 🙋♀️ Now hands up if your coming to the end of the year and worried that you won’t complete said challenge 🙋♀️
Yep, this year I set myself a goal of 55 books as last year I read 50 books. What I hadn’t planned was me trying to progress my art career.
The year started off strong and I thought I had plenty of time to read 55 books this year, alas, a few months back it pops up that I have to read 1.5 books a week to complete the challenge. That was just not going to happen. I have encounted multiple book slumps throughout the year, plus life in general. I have attempted 24hr read-a-thons that have ended up me reading a few pages of a book as other things come first or I fell asleep.
I reached a point were I would pick up a book read a few pages and put it down as I just didn’t feel like reading.
I decided not to worry about the goodreads challenge, if I reach 55 books yay, if I don’t, yay still. I’m taking my time reading at the moment, getting to enjoy it again. Its been a long time since I’ve sat in bed reading as I couldn’t put a book down, I began doing it again and its a great feeling.
Basically the point it, if you have a good reads challenge or a reading challenge in general, don’t stress yourself and nake reading a chore. Take your time and enjoy.
Would love to hear what you guys think. Do you have a reading challenge?
