It is hard to believe that it's the middle of April already... Crazy!
I am very proud of myself so far this year. Four months in and I have already read 69 books!!
To put this in perspective, my goal for all of 2013 was 65 books, so I have surpassed that already!
I used to be an avid reader so knowing that I am getting back into the habit of reading regularly is so awesome for me. I have fond memories of curling up as a teenager and reading many a book, losing myself in their worlds... Reading has always been an important part of my life, it's difficult to explain at times, I find. I know many people view reading as simply something that they do to be entertained, but reading is an integral part of my life, a part of my identity.
To be honest, not reading made me feel a bit lost whenever I thought about it and realised how little I was picking up a book, and I also think it contributed a bit to the depression that I struggled with over the last few years.
I started out with a goal of 80 books for this year but I have increased that to 150, and I have high hopes/confidence that I will be able to make it!
