I have always loved reading, mostly fiction and then a lot of books in the inspirational/ self-help genre. So when I went almost completely off reading for a couple of years, I couldn’t believe how much I had changed. It seemed so out of character that I could hardly get myself to finish even ten books in a year. At first, I put it down to the changes in my life – I had got married, moved cities, etc. But then, I realized it was due to the fact that I was gradually developing cataracts in both eyes at the ripe old age of 43! That was a shocker, for sure.
Thankfully, modern medicine has ensured that my vision is back to normal. And with that has come a renewed passion for reading. In 2011, I challenged myself to read 75 books. That done, in 2012, I read a 100 books! This year, I challenged myself to read another 100. However, I found myself reading at such a fast pace that I’ve altered that to a 125!
Here are two Book Reading Challenges you might like:
I absolutely love Goodreads. It so easy to keep a track of the books you’ve read and also to get reviews, suggestions, etc. Here’s what my challenge looks like today.
I saw The Book Vixen Challenge on my friend Sharmila’s blog and entered that too.
