Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.
This Week's Topic is:
About how many books do you read in a year? Do you want to read more? Or, less?
This year has been quite different because it's the first time I've read loads in one year. After university and the next stage of my education was over I could finally make my own choices in reading. I had no exams, essays, and required reading to get through and could now focus on more writing and my own reading. That's when I decided to start this blog, not just to help me keep track on NaNo but to keep track of my reading and really challenge myself.
And I did with these reading challenges.
The book I'm reading now (Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor) marks the last book on the Off the Shelf Challenge and overall completes the two challenges I signed up for. In total I've read 27 books this year which is the most I've ever done. And we'll see if I'll have time for more after this book.
I'd like to see if I can bump the total up to 50 for next year. I started out with a small list for each challenge just to see how I'd do. And I've managed it. Some months were slow like August and November but in other months I managed to get through 3 or 4 books. That's my monthly goal for next year. So we'll see how I manage. :) But this blog has really helped me to keep on track of my reading.
How has 2012 been for you in terms of reading? :)
