This week’s musing asks:
Do you have a reading goal for the year, such as __ books? Why or why not?
At the beginning of January I set the goal to read 100 books this year. Normally I average between 65 to 80 a year, but I decided to set the bar higher for this year. This goal breaks down to 8 – 9 books per month. In May I finished 12 books and that brings the total to 48 for the year. The daily challenge is to read 100 pages, regardless of what I’m reading. Sometimes I get distracted by work or other personal reasons. Weekends I might end up reading less because of dog shows and hiking trips. I try to maintain a daily average over a month’s period at 80 to 100 pages.
