With two trips and the Thanksgiving holiday being this month, I had an okay month of reading.
Books that I read in November:
Before I started book blogging and reading other book blogs, I thought reading at least 2 books a month was awesome. However when I see people post about reading 4 or 5 books a week AT THE LEAST, I think to myself, “When do they have time to do anything else?” For awhile I felt like a horrible reader, but I had to come to terms that I can only read at a pace I am comfortable with. STOP comparing myself to others.
My name is Book Snob Wannabe and I am a slow reader…. LOL
Living at the library:
Since getting my library card active again, I have been going crazy with checking out books. Knowing what I am a slow reader, I should not even step FOOT in a library until I get my “currently reading” list down, but I keep running to that library getting books… Smh….
2011 Book Challenges:
I basically decided to give up on them (well I decided this awhile ago) and start fresh in 2012. I have a more structured plan on completing them so it will be easy for me to keep up with them all.
Goodreads 2011 Reading Challenge:
I challenged myself to reading 25 books this year and I am at 14 (15 by the end of the weekend). Since by the end of next week I will be finish with my finals, I think that it will be realistic to finish 10 books in ONE month……. (even though I have NEVER done this).
I am still debating on how many books I want to challenge myself to read next year. Being that I am getting back into the grove of reading and actually dedicating time to it, I may aim for 40-50 books next year.
It all depends on how December goes......
