Reading Goals

screen-shot-2017-02-04-at-7-34-34-amDid you set a reading goal for 2017?  Perhaps your goal is to read a certain number of books during the year?  To read a book each month or a book each week?  To read along with the Canada Reads debates?  Perhaps your goal is to set a great example for your kids?  or to read more books to the kids igniting their own thirst for reading?  Whatever your goal is, here is a great article by Neil Pasricha which gives suggestions for having more time to read.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Pasricha and reading both The Happiness Equation and The Book of (Holiday) Awesome.  I loved hearing him speak about how his life had changed in a positive way and how he seeks out happiness.

For me, books make me happy.  I love the feel of them (especially the ones with rough pages), the crisp smell of new pages, the sound of the page turning and the joy of getting lost in a story. I have fond memories of weekly trips to the library and lazy summer days in the hammock with a book.

I love hearing about other readers and appreciated reading Pasricha’s example of Stephen King who has been seen reading while waiting in line at the movies.  I have heard that he brings books to baseball games too!

When do I read?  Whenever I have a chance.  We rarely have adult programs on the TV.  I read before bed and I listen to books during my commute.  If I am in a waiting room or have a few minutes, I read.  It is a rare day that passes without having a book in my hand.

What is your goal?  How do you squeeze in a little extra time reading?

  1. My goal this year is to read 90 books and to read more diversely. I rarely watch TV, so reading is how I unwind. I also like to utilize audiobooks when I’m in the car and while doing housework.
