In the beginning of the year I had resolved to read 200 books this year, having read 158 books the previous year.
I don’t count the books I have read but at the end of year, I take stock of what kind of books I am reading. I just list out the books from my #NowReading on twitter.
After 8 months, I am happy to share that I have more than met my target, having read approx 140 books till date. I have also ensured that I am challenging my comfort zone, reading books which I won’t usually read or enjoy. Like Lincoln in the Bardo (the weirdest book I have read this year)
Some books have been easy and some books were tedious and some books average. I have sacrificed food, sleep and social life. Writing my own book (s) has been put on a back burner.
I could achieve this only because I really really love reading books.
Conclusion: You can achieve anything you want as long as you enjoy doing that. This lesson is now going to be applied to several other things that deserve my attention.
Me: I finished reading 100 books Where is my medal?
Dad: I will give you a gift instead
Dad: Bucks (to buy more books)
