Reading List 2018

This year, I’ve taken a different approach to my reading schedule. I’m simply reading what I want, when I want. No rules, no deadlines.

Last year’s goal of a book a week was a fantastic in many ways and really re-ignited my love of reading. However, there were times I was not engaged with a book and only forced myself to read it since I felt obligated. There were also times when “life happened” and reading became a stressful activity to fit into my schedule instead of an enjoyable one. As such, I decided to drop the notion of “a book a week” and a “theme a month” and simply read for the sake of reading.
