I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about 2017 Reading Challenges on other blogs lately, which has prompted me to think about my own reading goals. My goal this year is a simple one: read more. A few weeks ago I mentioned that the past year had been a rocky one for me, and that, sadly, I didn’t get to read as much as I normally would. I set a small goal for myself on Goodreads for 2017. It’s nothing too ambitious, not compared to some of the goals others are setting, but it’s something that seems attainable and will, hopefully, help get me back on track.
I’m always hesitant to do reading challenges because I worry that it will start to feel more like something I have to do, rather than something I want to do. How do you guys feel about reading challenges? Are they enjoyable or does finishing them feel like more of an obligation?
