My passion has always been reading, it just took me awhile to figure it out. Once my love for reading took hold, I’ve always had a book in front of my face. Now, with the help of some really great websites, I am reading more than I ever have, the library is my best friend. I am at there at least three times a month. The librarians know me on a first name basis. I am running out of places to store all of my books. So instead of buying them, I just borrow them and return them. I’m sure my family appreciates it too.
Now that it is August, I have a lot of work to do to stay on top of my reading goal for the year. It is always good to stay on top of your goals. Now that we are into the second half of the year, remember to take a look back at what your own yearly goals were. It is easy to fall off track with certain goals, life tends to get in the way. Usually by February-March-ish we tend to even forget we had a New Year’s Resolution all together. There is still time left this year to get those goals met!
I love the website GoodReads.com. Not only can you search books, but you can see what other readers are saying about books through book reviews and ratings. This year I set my reading goal at 25 books. This goal is a little light for me, but I was finishing up my second degree. I had a lot going on in my personal life, where I did not have the time for leisure activities. I wanted to set a reasonable goal for myself for this year.
As I grow older, I am realizing I have an obsession with words. I have kept a journal most of my life. I love being able to twist words in a way to create something beautiful. Now that I have the time to be able to set time aside to work on have a functioning blog, I am going for it. By next year I want to be a fully running blog with a consistent posting schedule. Stay on top of your goals my friends, and you will be unstoppable.
