So, here’s the deal.
I love to read. I remember in about 6th grade (give or a take a year) I found THE book. You know, the one that makes you realize that reading for pleasure is a real thing and you love it! Sadly I cannot remember the title of the book but I remember the story and can picture the cover in my mind. Since that book in middle school I have read countless books for pleasure, especially in high school. I read like crazy (maybe because I wasn’t partying like most of my classmates #nerd).
Sadly, when I entered the real word, which was full of a career, bills to pay, house to clean, commitments, and now a toddler… reading for pleasure fell to the wayside. I bet in the past four years I have maybe read 10 books, and that makes me sad.
So, now that I am officially into my summer vacation (or my “forever summer” ) I am setting a goal for myself. For the summer season (today, until Fall begins on September 22) I am challenging myself to read 17 books for fun! Lucky for me I have already started one and have a ton piled on my nightstand waiting to be read!
I plan on sharing this journey with you and sharing how I am fitting reading in, as well has reviewing some of the books I read! If you have any suggestions for great reads (I like happy books – not the popular dark fiction) send them my way! Or, if you want to join in on the challenge with me I would love to hear from you!
