Reading Goal #2

I decided to give up on my reading goal. Even though I shortened it from 120 to 100 books.

I have started to hate reading. Like I was being forced to read. I become so obsessed when I set goals for myself, like no soda, reading goals, losing weight, etc.

I just become to obsessed and its not good for me.

From now on I will read for pleasure, not to make some goal or big amount of reading. I just can't stand it that I've come to loathe reading, when a lot of times it takes me out of my life into a better one where I'm not the main character.

So I'm done with reading goals!

I started reading a book today, and I practically felt relief flood through me when I picked up a book that wasn't one that is due back soon. It felt so good. Like that feeling when you bite into something really good, and your mind is just like "Ahhhh". I know I'm a weirdo. But getting rid of this goal is going to take a lot off me. Who knows without me going "Need to read need to read!" I could even make it to 100 books.

Whats odd is I had a goal of reading 100 books last year but it didn't feel anything like this. I don't remember thinking "I don't want to read." or "I'm starting to hate reading."

Such a relief!!!!!

I know how that can feel...when I feel that way about reading and reviewing, I know it's time to do some outdoor activities for a while ;)

If you get a chance, I would love it if you could update my link on your blogroll to my new address: I appreciate being on your blogroll, and you are still on mine! :) thanks!
