While I may not have done much in the way of writing during January, I was able to do more reading than usual. Enough reading, in fact, to help me successfully complete my Goodreads reading challenge, for the first time ever, by the end of the month. And this was despite losing a week of reading time to the flu. Admittedly, the target of ten books I set myself is miniscule compared to the goals of many other Goodreads users, but given how many obstacles life typically throws in front of me it still represented a challenge, albeit a modest one.
This year is the sixth time I’ve participated in the annual Goodreads reading challenge, and I’m very pleased to have finally completed one, especially during the first month of the year. Now that it’s wrapped up I can enjoy my reading for the rest of the year without having to worry about choosing books to read specifically with a view to reaching my target. With my ten books in the bag already, it is my hope that I can now go on to read a minimum of 25 books, in total, by the end of the year. 😀
Thanks for reading,
