Hoping to get out of this reading slump in September. My daughter’s starting school, so while she’s learning to read, I’m going to be reading. I hope.
The book I’m reading now should be finished in the next couple weeks. I will work hard on it! And then I’ll move on to something new, one of the books I got earlier this year. Take a look at my to be read list.
So, if I can finish Revelation Space, I’ll move on to N. K. Jemisin’s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, then Andy Weir’s The Martian. I’m really looking forward to them.
What are you planning to read in September? Let me know in the comments below.
Do you love reading? I do. I love it so much I want to get myself into the worlds that exist in the books. But I find I’m not reading much at the moment. I’m on the same book I started in February. That’s too long! So, I need to get myself to read. Just set aside a little time. Reading is good for you! It can help you increase your vocabulary, reduce stress, and it’s good mental and emotional therapy. Some people say it can even make you more successful. But I just enjoy it.
Here is my challenge for myself: Set aside thirty minutes a day when I can be alone in a quiet place and read. I should be able to finish the book I’m reading within two weeks and finish another book by the end of this month. So, I’m going to do it!
I talked about this in a video, as well. If you like cute things, watch the video! My daughter is in it. She wants hearts.
So, how do you set aside time for yourself to read? Let me know in the comments below. Also, send some hearts for my daughter. She wants some.
As I’ve mentioned before, I really have to start reading more again. I’ve slowed down far too much. The book I’m reading right now has taken me so long to read, but it’s not because of the book. I’m really enjoying it.
I decided to start making videos each month talking about the books I read in the month that just finished and what I’d like to read in the current month. So, here it is:
I feel like I’m going to keep talking about Redemption Ark, but I want to finish it! The next two books are much shorter, and should be a lot easier to get through. And best of all, they’re newer books that I just got. It’ll be great to read more recently written books.
Have you read any of these books? Let me know in the comments below.
If you look on Goodreads, and check out my to read list, you’ll notice that I have 923 books listed. At the pace I’ve been reading, it’ll take me forty-six years to read all of them. But for many of them, they’re only the first books of series I want to read. That means the number of books is easily three to four times as big. My life won’t be that long.
I’ve noticed some people, including authors, can read up to 300 books a year. I’d really like to know how they do that! How many hours do they read every day? How do they find the time to do that?
I know I’ve been slacking off in my reading recently. I really should just try go somewhere in the house where I can be by myself and read. But that’s difficult to do. I could easily read an hour or two a day. I remember when I was in university, I read four or five hours a day for a while. I burned through the books quickly. But this was during summer when I had no classes, and all I was doing was working. I’d like to get through my books quickly. I want to read at least fifty books a year.
How many books do you read a year? How many hours do you read every day? Let me know in the comments below.
