I was having a think about my reading habits and the habits of others in the blogisphere. I’m not sure if it is just me, or whether it is others too, so if its not you, please feel free to correct me.
I have been thinking that maybe the love within reading has disappeared a little for me, and maybe others. it seems that i am flying through books with one object in mind, to read as quickly as i can, and get through books to have a high number of books read at the end of the year.
A lot of the time I’m checking the page number every few pages and working out how many pages are left in the book. I need to cut out doing this. Also, towards the second half of last year i was reading books just to count them as a number, and skim reading sometimes almost half a book. That doesnt seem like good bookworm behaviour.I was even reading when i didnt feel like reading just to finish books.
So this year i am going to do things a little different, for the love of reading.
- I will read a book and enjoy it
- i would like to have read 75 books by the end of the year, however if i dont it doesnt matter.
- I will read when i fancy it, not to keep up with others
- If it takes me a week or a month to read a book, it doesnt matter either.
Hopefully i will get back into the love of reading this year, and re-discover why i fell in love in the first place.
