I was talking with one of my friends this week about hard November, and realistically all year around, it is for a university student to fit reading just for fun into their day. Lets be honest we are reading textbooks or regular books for required reading (some is interesting, some we want to throw at a wall, and some we were planning on reading anyway.)
Personally I struggle with setting aside time for my reading. Honestly? I try to read before bed but then I stay up till 5am until I finish the book. Honestly? It will take me generally more than two hours to read a chapter in my Byzantine history textbook and this is not on a good day either. That’s my average day.
So I decided that I would try to plan out, loosely since I am known to go wander library and pick a random book then proceed to devour it in a day, what I am going to read during the month. I understand I will probably not hit my target goal that I set back in January on my goodreads account (too ashamed to actually say what it is now, but I will in December!). But I am at the point where as a bookworm, who in the past could read upwards of 200 books a year, it is not just tiring for me but also frustrating that I have not been able to hit that same area since I graduated from high school not so long ago.
Tomorrow I will post the books that I am going to try reading this month and a reason it’s on my list. Well I guess today since…it is past midnight.
Any recommendations? I’m always looking for new and interesting books. I have made it my goal to make each month’s list fairly diverse. Or I am trying to but I am not perfect (really, I am human.)
What are you planning to read this month? Are you part of any book clubs?
