I love to read which is a good thing since I’m an author! Each year I always set a goal for the amount of books I want to read by December 31st.
The number of books for my reading goal always stays the same: 100. Some years I’ve hit it or go over (121 a couple of years ago). Other times, I fall short like this past year: 35 books read. But it doesn’t matter. Of course, I love it when I reach my goal but setting the bar high means I stretch myself and I end up reading some pretty awesome books.
So far this year I’ve read 5 books and I’m reading two right now. But I’m also writing my next novel so this pace might slow down. At this rate I might read 60 – 70 books for 2019 but still shooting for 100.
Since I am reading a good number of books, I’ve decided to start sharing some of my favorites with you. I’ve kept a list of the books I’ve read over the last 5 years and there are some really good ones! So each week look for a book recommendation from me and if you have read it please let me know your thoughts.
What is your book reading goal for the year? Make it a little higher than you think you can reach and you’ll probably be amazed what you accomplish.
