In my teens I only read books I was forced to read at school, except for a few random ones here and there. Since my teens I would say I’ve read about a handful of books. I think it’s safe to say that prior to 2016, the last time I read a book was over 10 years ago! 😮
I set myself a goal at the start of this year to try and develop a reading habit. When I say reading habit, what I mean is to start reading books. I’m already a regular reader of articles ie: shorter pieces of writing.
So anyway, I persevered and finished my first book earlier this month, yay! I’m currently on my second book and really enjoying it.
I think I finally get what all the fuss is about!
I now understand the joy that comes with reading books. I’m really enjoying being able to escape into another world by reading different stories and learning about different characters.
I also love the GoodReads website. I love being able to discover new books to add to my “to-read” shelf, and update my progress which motivates me to keep going.
I think I’m hooked 🙂
