Winter is coming…. #2015ReadingGoal
Let’s Discuss: The Wonder & Terror of Reading Goals
It’s crunch time. There are only 11 weeks left in the year. That means if you’re behind on your reading challenge, you better GET READING!
Not that I would know anything about that…
This got me thinking: do reading challenges encourage or stress you out more? Or does it depend on the time of year (January vs October)? How seriously do you take your yearly reading challenge?
For me, my enjoyment of my reading challenge is directly related to my reading mood and what time of year it is. In January, I’m fired up and ready to go. Then by fall, I’m feeling tired. Sometimes by December, I’ve got a second wind due to vacation and down time.
I think I take my goal too seriously sometimes. If it’s causing me stress, I try to take a step back and look at the quality – and page count! – of books I’ve read. If I’m happy with my choices, then I try to stop my goal-oriented self from taking over.
I’m so afraid you’re all going to say how chill you are about your reading goals, and I’m going to feel like such a weirdo. OR are you just that amazing that you’ve completed your goals?! (Mel, I’m looking at you).
Please comfort me and tell me your 2015 reading goal has made you crazy too.
