I have never once set a reading goal for any given year and I’ve set a yearly film-watching goal ever since 2015. It’s time for that to change. Find out how many I plan on reading below.
I didn’t want to overwhelm myself considering I work long weeks and have numerous writing projects going on throughout the year, but I didn’t want to half-ass it and only read one book a month.
So, my goal for the number of books I want to read in 2018 is:
Twenty. Yup, a simple, round number of twenty books is all I’m able to commit to at this point. If I can read more than hooray(!), but I am trying to stay faithful to this goal and not give up halfway through the year. These can be non-fiction like autobiographies or screenwriting books, fiction, or even the Whole30 book you may have seen me posting about.
This is HUGE for me, considering I used to hate reading as a kid (even the Book-It Challenges) and haven’t employed the method of entertainment much since. Truth be told, by completing twenty books for 2018, I will have read more books than in the past ten years, COMBINED. Yes, this a sad fact for me as well.
Hence, the challenge! Do any of you out there have any similar challenges? I know, this was inspired by friends like Spencer, Emily, Kaity, and Chris who have been avid readers and – at some point or another – have challenged themselves in their reading prowess.
Oh, and did I mention that I would be providing a book report on each book here on my blog? Yeah, I’m doing that too.
Suck it, lazy, young Jamie.
Okay, let’s start small and make 2019’s goal forty!
