Oh! I haven’t made any book reading resolutions for this year and it’s already February! Well, I’ve signed up to read 100 books on goodreads, but that’s less of a challenge and more of a hope, considering all the essays I have to write and the journals I’ll have to read instead of books.
Final year is so much tougher than I thought it would be. Maybe it’s because last year felt so… indulgent. I got to read as many books as I liked in any genre because they were in French. Now that I’m back in England, I feel a little guilty whenever I read a book in English.
Maybe setting a number of books to read in French and Spanish would make me feel less guilty and would in turn help me to read more? Will mull it over ‘til Monday.
Summary of 2012
Last year I managed to read a record number of books (for me, that is). A cool total of 150 books (excluding re-reads), which is a pretty decent number, even for a student. Despite this, I didn’t manage to complete all my reading challenges for 2012. O.o
Despite this, I feel as though I’ve taken the next step in the long journey of discovering new books, stepping out of my comfort zone and appreciating what something I never thought I’d read can offer. Or trying to in the case of the few books I didn’t like so much.
How do you feel about setting yourself goals for reading/ writing/ watching films? Do you think they help you appreciate the ones you like more?
