I have a lot of books.Â Well, compared to some bloggers I see I don’t have tons, but I think I have a lot.Â Of the books that I have at home, I haven’t read most of them.Â I’m sure I’m not alone in that either.Â So I’ve decided to give myself a challenge for 2020 to read more of these books.Â
I thought about this for a while.Â I didn’t want to make a list or set a number or anything that would make me rebel.Â I’m the ultimate mood reader after all.Â In the end I decided to add a section to my monthly wrap up post to highlight I book I already owned that I read.Â That way I hopefully would get at least one a month to put in that section.Â I started to think about how to define a book that would countÂ – I couldn’t have bought it immediately prior to reading it, etc. – but decided in the end that I would know in my heart if a book counted for this or not.Â Â
It is the perfect plan for me.Â Low expectations and no rules.Â Feel free to steal the idea if you like it.Â Â
What do you do to read all the books that you have sitting around?
I’ve been trying to do this for a few years now but the list of owned but unread books just keeps growing. I never had this problem until I started blogging and saw all the books other bloggers were reading – many of which I just felt I had to have. I did try a TBR challenge but it didn’t work because you had to make a list in advance of the books you would read. And I am hopeless at reading from a list……..
Your relaxed approach is much more appealing
This is what I’ve been trying to do this year, because I have soooo many books sitting around…I still have too many, but I made a small dent.
