Well, now that we’re 3.5 months into the year, I thought it’d be a good idea to share my reading goals progress. At first, I thought it would be silly to share my reading progress because …
…I have finished a whopping 1 (one) book! I have started countless others, but I haven’t finished any of them.
Does this every happen to you? I feel like as soon as I set my goal, a reading slump ensued. There are a couple piles of books on my night stand, nearly all with book marks in them. I’ve tried quite a few things to get my pumped about reading.
I’ve set a reading list for each month in my planner. I’ve set aside time at 10:00 every night to read before I fall asleep. I’ve packed a book in my bag for each day. I’ve even set a book on the end table in the living room so I can pick it up in a free moment.
It’s almost like I can’t relax enough to read, if that makes sense? I hit a reading slump last year about this time, and it was during a really, really busy time in our lives. Things aren’t super crazy right now, so I don’t know what it is.
All I know is that I still want to read 40 books this year, and I’m still determined to do it!
If you’ve ever been in a reading slump, how did you get out of it?
