My new year resolution for 2020 and the past two years has been the same. To read SIX books. Six isn’t much, and people who have a habit of reading regularly might even laugh at this because I know people who read six books in a month. Obviously, six books in a year to them might seem like a bit.. to little.
It’s not that I don’t like reading, in fact, I’ve always loved reading. I would often find myself reading a lot of stories online. I read stories on Wattpad, there were a lot of subreddits on which I’d spend a lot of my time, just reading, then there were all these text-based story games which I enjoyed quite a bit.
I started reading my first series when I was in 8th grade. Which series? Harry Potter. I loved it. I collected money and bought each one of those books. They were pretty expensive for me back then, but I made sure I bought and read every book because I really wanted a collection of my own. That began my journey of reading.
I noticed until the story got sort of intense, I would read really slowly and so it would take me months to even cover half the book. The second half usually ended up taking much lesser time and in a year I’d end up reading two books or three at most. I realised it wasn’t because of my reading speed but rather because I spent a lot of days (most of it, actually) by not reading even a single page. But, for some reason, I always wanted to read more. Hence, the new year’s resolution.
I’m writing this post today because I have completed the challenge! It was a few days ago actually and I knew I wanted to write this but I became a victim of procrastination (I always have been).
I’ll write, in my next post, about the books that I read and I’ll tell you how I liked all of them 😀
What was your new year’s resolution? How far have you come? Let me know! 😀
I hope you achieve your target and fulfill it and I hope you enjoyed reading!
