My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!
But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.
Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.
Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.
I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “[amazon_textlink asin=’0525533338′ text=’The Bullet Journal Method’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thesmortothes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’894d85fa-0f75-11e9-8366-a3c773cd70cc’]” by Ryder Carroll.
I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several [amazon_textlink asin=’B0756R9W1N’ text=’Scribbles That Matter’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thesmortothes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’cb9e9ada-0f75-11e9-9ca9-83cd32eff3db’] ones, including the actual [amazon_textlink asin=’B07KX5T6YC’ text=’Bullet Planner’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thesmortothes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d9efc33a-0f75-11e9-a181-09dc3d6c9e5f’] that came out this year). But I have a [amazon_textlink asin=’B01MY462LU’ text=’ring-bound planner’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thesmortothes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’2cb9eaf1-0f76-11e9-a03f-2d0631eb2517′], instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a [amazon_textlink asin=’B01DJH659U’ text=’Recollections 6 hole punch’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thesmortothes-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’7a25412a-0f76-11e9-977a-25b06e14a2ab’] for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.
Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.
So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!
As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O
2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.
2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.
- Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!
So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).
