I get asked this question a lot, and the fact that I’ve already hit my goodreads goal for the year? Yea, I guess I do. I know it’s a lot more than most, but a lot less than a lot of other book bloggers out there.
So how do I read so many books? Here’s how I do it:
Every night I go to bed at least an hour or two before I actually go to sleep. For the most part, that’s the only time I actually read. Occasionally on a weekend I may read for an hour or two during the day if I’m in the middle of a particularly good book. I typically get through a couple of books a week at this pace.
I’m destroying my goal this year because I’ve started audiobooking like crazy. My job is pretty easy, so I can just plug in my headphones and listen to books all day long, that’s adding another 2-3 books a week into my count. It’s kinda the best, not going to lie.
Audiobooks aside, to read more I think the best thing to do is to find a time and place where you can sit and read every day, every other day, once a week, whatever works for you. It’s all about creating a habit. Maybe at first you need to force yourself to read, but it doesn’t feel so much like forcing yourself if you’re enjoying it. Or if it does feel like a chore, you’re apparently reading the wrong book, try picking up something else.
What are your reading habits? Do you wish you read more, or think you read too much (if there’s such a thing)?Read More
