Musing Mondays is a weekly feature hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week MizB asks a book related question and we have to give our answers.
This week’s musing asks…
Do you have a reading goal for the year, such as __ books? Why or why not?
The answer to this is yes, I do have a reading goal. I never used to take much notice of how many books I read a year. It used to be read as many books as I can, but now I spend more time blogging, the books I've read over the year has gone down. Last year was the first time I set a reading goal, I noticed on Goodreads that there was a Reading Challenge, so I thought why not give it a try. I did actually surprise myself as I managed to read 122 books in 2011.
This year I have also set myself another Goodreads Reading Challenge of 110 books, I'm not doing that well at the moment as I've only read 22 books this year. So this means I am behind my schedule. I do feel a bit under pressure, but then again life gets in the way and that can't be helped. I'm not stressing out about the amount of books I read, because at the end of the day I'm here to enjoy the books and it's not a race!!
