For a while, I felt like I wasn’t getting through as many books as I would like to, and with a to-read list that seems to get longer by the day, I’ve been making a conscious effort to read more recently. I’ve always been a ‘little and often’ kind of reader; I find it much more satisfying to read short amounts every day rather than big chunks sporadically. I just find it easier to keep track of the plot that way and like that reading simply becomes habitual; an integral part of my day, rather than feeling like a task that must be met when possible.
I do feel like I’ve been successful in reading more overall these last couple of months, which is great, but I’ve never been one to keep track of how many books I’ve actually finished. It would be interesting to see how much more I read now as opposed to when I was younger, and next year, I hope to set a reading target of a certain number of books to give that extra incentive and motivation to finally slow the growth of that seemingly bottomless to-read pile.
Do you read regularly or just as and when you can? Do you read more now than when you were younger? Do you keep track of how many books you’ve read?
