Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with a fun new tag created by Ally, who also tagged me! She created this original tag as a twist on the Bad Reading Habits tag to give reading habits a more positive feeling since we so often talk about the negative aspects!
- Pingback to this post or me!
- List some of your good reading habits, the things you think you do well
- Nominate some of your blogging friends
I usually read well with a deadline, whether that is a library end of the month deadline or a blog post deadline. Something I have incorporated into my reading for 2019 is a few blog post deadlines per month, basically, I have a few posts towards the end of each month that require me to have read a particular book read in order to write the blog post. This encourages me to read books much more than a library deadline and I’m completely okay with that.
I always read on the bus! I travel to Uni at least 3 times a week and I have roughly 4 hours of travel time in each day, so optimistically with that travel tie I can get roughly 100-200 pages read during those Uni days and it is pretty much the only time I get any reading done!
I set a reasonable reading goal at the start of the year! I always try to set a goal for the year that I know I will be able to complete, I know Goodreads Challenges are great for helping you to push yourself to read more, but I try to use my challenge more as an indicator of how much I’ve been reading throughout the year and as an indicator of how confident I felt about the next year. For example, my goal for 2018 was 52 (1 book a week) and I think my goal for 2019 will either be 100 or 1 – I have a lot of reading plans for 2019 but I am also getting into my second year at Uni and I don’t know how much reading I will do. I am really hoping to go for a more optimistic goal of 100, but we’ll see!
