I love reading.
It makes me happy.
There’s nothing like getting completely consumed and lost in a good book.
But sometimes life gets in the way and the reading can slip by the wayside.
To make reading and the joy it brings a priority in my life I set myself challenges.
The first is on GoodReads. I set myself a challenge to read x amount of books a year.
Living overseas and travelling and commuting so much, I was easily reading 25+ books a year.
This dipped significantly, so I decided half that amount would be good.
12 books a year, one a month. That’s my goal.
Then I discovered that my local Library also has a reading challenge.
Whilst the name they chose has more a Mills & Boone connotation to it, (Adult Reading Challenge…?!?) I like the idea of a Residents Reading Challenge.
So, follow along as I stretch my reading horizons and leap out of my comfort zone (from the comfort of my sofa/bed/back deck).
