Reading Challenge

So, in Goodreads, I pledged to read 30 books this year. I was thinking of only doing 20 as I have some really big books to read this year. I also have about 600 books that I still have not read sitting on bookcases about the house. We have bookcases near every room, and in all our halls, which we have 4. I do love books and am more than happy to sit and read all day every day, not that that is productive by any means, but if I could I would.

So far I have read one book, and I am part way through my next book, but being an avid reader does cause problems as I tend to have about 14 books on the go at any one time. I am also a Kindle lending library member, a Kindle unlimited member, Kindle first reads member, and I have access to ebook from the county library too. So all in all, if I never bought another book in my life, when I come to the end of my time on the planet I will still have shelves of books that I never got round to reading. Part of me feels sad about this, but I knew when I was in my early 20’s that I would never get to read all the book I ever wanted to before I died. Back then I could get through a most Stephen King novels in a weekend. I remember back when I was 21, one Saturday I went to Woolworths and bought James Herberts Creed, came home and hung off the end of my bed and read it from cover to cover (320 pages) that day. On saying that, at that time I was a big fan of James Herbert and Clive Barker, so I tended to consume books back then. These days I seem to have little time to read, and if I do get to sit down with a book, the dogs want to play, or generally, want to stop me from reading.

With a bit of determination, I will surpass this goal.
