Goals of Reading for 2k15


At the beginning of every year, I would give myself a reading goal.  I've been doing this for years and every year, I fall behind and try to read as many books as possible in a short period to catch up.    
     Towards the end of 2014, I discarded my goal.  I realized that I wasn't enjoying reading as I should have.  Instead,  I was only caring about the number of books I have read and the books I had yet to read before the year ended.

     This year, I'm going to do something different.  It will expand my boundaries of reading and open my mind to new genres.

(Feel free to try it out for yourself!)

  1. I'm doing something like this too! It was the TBR jar challenge created by Katytastic, where you pick one reading challenge randomly every month. It's great because you can choose your own books. :)
