Every year, I challenge myself to read a certain amount of books and every year I fail.
As a kid, reading was the only thing I did then boarding school, university and grad school happened and hobbies were forced on me. I’ve lost the ability to truly block everything out and get lost in a book. Although when I do, I read about three in three weeks and I don’t sleep for the period, either.
In January, I challenged myself to read 20 books and although I failed, I read 11, which is pretty decent in my opinion. Actually, I’m pretty proud of the fact that I found time to read that many so cheers to that.
Here are the books I drowned myself in this year:
As I reminisce about the sleep I lost, I’m starting the Confessions series by James Patterson. To be real, there’s no way I’ll be done by the end of December so this will be a great addition for my 2016 challenge.
