Reading Inspiration For 2018
Many times we find ourselves wanting to read a lot of books but end up getting through 1-2, and boom, the year goes by…
I consider myself one of those people, but 2018 will be the year I change that. Here are some great tips to help us read the amount we always wished to.
1. Be realistic and set a realistic goal.
A great app to help with that is ‘Goodreads’. The app gives you an option to set the amount of books you would like to read. Don’t be tempted to set a high amount just because your friends are reading 30 books a year. Start with twelve books (1 per month). If you see yourself reading at a faster rate, you can always re-adjust your goal.
2. Make a goal of how many pages to read per day, or a specific amount of time reading per day.
HAPPY PUB DAY to these two beauties @catapultcatapult #partner @putnambooks #partner who are officially out in the world this morning. I’m halfway through both and they are verrrrry different. Pick up Neon in Daylight if you’re in the mood for sleek, lovely writing and a somewhat gritty, moody novel. Go for The Immortalists if you like multiple points of view and are interested in family dramas. Which one would you pick up? #theardentbiblioreads
So either 30 minutes / 1-hour sessions, or 20 pages / 2 chapters a day. Don’t overdue it and set an amount that isn’t realistic. That type of approach might be too much and could eventually backfire.
3. Decide what time of day would be most comfortable for you.
Now that it’s the month of giving thanks, I’m thankful for guys who appreciate some fine leather and dreamy novels like The Alchemist. Speaking of dreams, I am suddenly becoming inspired to follow mine…right off this train, out of the station and to wherever he's headed next. #HopefullyHisApartment #PuttingtheLooseinLucidDreams #HotDudesReading #HDRFanGram
Usually the best time to read would be in the morning with your cup of coffee. Another good time would be on the bus or subway on the way to and from work. At first it might feel like a personal objective but eventually you will most likely enjoy it and actually look forward to it 🙂
