I’m doing the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge this year.
I feel kind of odd picking a challenge to read more since being ‘a reader’ is a huge part of my mental image of myself. And I am a reader but I have found that in the last couple of years there are SO MANY books that I want to read that I have trouble choosing where to start.
That leads to me skimming all kinds of books and not really getting into them. And that, in turn, leads to me getting on my own nerves. Which, oddly enough, I do NOT enjoy.
I still read a huge number of books each year (I haven’t kept records before now) but a lot of them are either for my work (coaching/writing/storytelling) or they are such quick fiction that I almost immediately forget the plots and characters. I’m not putting down either of those types of books, I love reading in my field(s) and quick fiction is really enjoyable. But that is not all that I want to get out of my reading.
So, hence the Read Harder challenge.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
