After reading Joyfullmothering’s blog post, My book list for January 2013, I was inspired to set myself a goal for reading for January as well. I was a little overwhelmed with Christin’s list and asked her how realistic it was. She outlined for me when she reads which makes it a very doable list (for her).
There is no way I can get through such a long list, but the idea isn’t to do the same as Christin, but to be inspired by her.
Goals are supposed to be measurable and specific. And yet I’m not sure how much time I will really be able to put aside for reading. I have an idea, and it looks doable on paper, but will I really be able to do it. I don’t know so though I’d like to think that I can get through three books in January – we’ll see. Part of my setting this goal is to measure how long it takes for me to read a book, and how much time is realistic for me to read. So for now my goal is for January and maybe February!
I tend to read for 10min before I fall asleep and I leave this reading to my fiction. I have designated 30minutes after lunch for most days – my home days anyway. But until now this time slot tends to get used for other things. I’d like to make reading more of a priority and make that happen at that time.
I’ve chosen 3 books: one for fun, one to grow in my relationship with God and one to learn something from. My chosen titles are:
The reason I have set this goal is to try and be intentional with my own studies. If you like this idea I’d love to hear from you in the comments – let me know which books you are going to read
