I’ve been making a point since Christmas to do a lot more reading than I had been. I love reading but with work and family life I never seemed to get much of a chance for it.
I guess it’s one of my New Year’s resolutions to consciously make more of an effort to make the time for reading. I went onto Goodreads.com and entered my Reading Challenge. I was amazed at some of the challenges people were setting for themselves. One person had challenged herself to read over 300 books in one year! I’ve gone for something a bit more conservative and have aimed for 12 books in a year. I think this is quite manageable, considering that I will be doing an OU course for nine months.
So I’ve been doing alright on the reading front and making my way through the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, which I didn’t realise is actually five books, or as Douglas Adams calls it ‘a trilogy in five parts’.
I whizzed through the first four books and really enjoyed them but the last one, Mostly Harmless, is proving to be a bit of a struggle. I haven’t been concentrating on it and don’t quite know what’s happening at the moment. I put it down for a couple of weeks to read something else, which I finished quite quickly, but now I think I’m going to have to restart Mostly Harmless. I just need a good hour long stint on it to get myself back into it.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
Until next time readers,
