Hie ! This post was meant to be written 15 days back, unfortunately, couldn’t do it all thanks to non-sense college assignments.
Those who are my friends on Goodreads must be knowing that I completed my book challenge 🙂 (yes, I am bragging :P)
This year I had decided to read 30 novels, now I feel that I should have taken 100 books challenge!
Last year I took 20 books challenge and had to read 4 books in the last week of December to finish it! I wasn’t expecting to read this fast, in fact, I was doubtful about finishing 30 books in a year!
Things I did differently this year were :
- Didn’t spend time reading the books that didn’t interest me! I put off the books that didn’t interest me.
- Created ritual for reading, I made sure to read for at least for 30mins before dozing off
- Read a lot between boring college classes (it also increased my attendance!)
- Started this blog! I believe this blog & its readers gave me constant motivation to keep reading! Thank you!
I still have 1/4th of the year left, Now, I wish to read 100 books, but I have decided to read books which would help me academically. I would also be reading classics & other famous novels in summer vacations too but I would certainly try to read more of academic books from now on.
Basically, From now on, I would be reading the books which would be helping me in near future 🙂
My other plan for rest of the years include :
- Podcasts & Audiobooks : I recently started listening to podcasts during transit, I loved it! Hoping to listen to several podcasts & audio books this year. I would also be adding a podcast column to my blog where I can suggest some awesome podcasts to my fellow bloggers 🙂
- Robots ! : If you had read my bio, you must be knowing that I am electronics student, I love working with Arduinos, I am going to do at least 3 robotics projects this year (from July onwards), I am also planning to add electronics section to my blog where I can share my electronics projects with you 🙂
I don’t think I would be able to read as frequently later in the year as I did in these months, also won’t be able to update my blog regularly too (though I still would be spamming all your blogs with my comments :P)
As of now I have read some 33 books, And I am yet to write reviews for the last 3 books, I have exams from next week, which would last for two months! (yes, in india, we engineers spend 2 months writing exams every semester !), I believe I won’t be able to write any blog post for next 2 months 😦
Thanks for reading!
I would love if you suggest me a book or podcast or electronics project in the comment section! Or just drop a hie! , also you can wish me luck for my exams!
