I thought today I would give you a quick update on how I’m doing with my ‘2012 Reading Challenge’.
My aim was to read 50 books this year and so far I have managed…a pathetic…14.
According to Goodreads that means that I am at 26% of my challenge when, at this point I should be at 56%. Ooops! So from today I’m really getting my reading head on.
My problem is that I do all my reading in my bed at night but I have to confess to being a bit of a night owl and I usually stay up into the wee, small hours tweeting on Twitter or catching up with my two favourite soaps, Emmerdale and Coronation Street, which I never seem to manage to see at the scheduled times. Then of course, when I do get to bed, I’m too tired to read. It’s not as if there’s a shortage of reading material either. I currently have…wait for it…57 books on my Kindle and 12 ‘paper’ books all waiting to be read. I’ve even started carrying my Kindle everywhere with me in the hope that I can catch a few extra minutes to read a chapter or so.
So, from now on, the other part of my challenge is to have earlier nights so that I can get back on track.
I’d love to hear how everyone else is getting on with the challenge and also if anyone has more books than I have physically sitting in their ‘to read’ pile.
