Next year, I’m going to try the read a book a week challenge as a New Year’s Resolution. Anyone done this? I’ve seen some YouTube videos with people discussing this as well as reviewing some of the books they’ve read. I plan to stick to mainly non fiction, primarily history and politics. However, I’m also planning on job hunting and moving next year as well so I guess I can include some career development and self help books as well. I’ll also occasionally dive into fiction, I’ve got a decent amount of historical fiction and sci fi books on my Kindle as well as some mysteries and the Ian Fleming James Bond novels (which I haven’t been impressed with so far.)
Is it fair to include books I’ve started but didn’t finish in 2018? I’ve got about 5 that I’m about halfway through. I also realize there might be weeks that I’ll read more than one book, but also some of the lengthy political and history tomes may take longer than a week. I’m going to try not to reread anything, unless it’s been over ten years.
Anyway, feel free to share your experiences if you did the challenge in 2018 or if you’re also going to try to do it for 2019.
