Hello all you good people!
Lately I have been evaluating what is important to me, what I want to do in my life and how I want to spend my free time. Let's face it. There are literally hundreds of ways you can waste/spend your time in today's technologically advanced day and age. But for me, my love of reading has always had it's hooks in me. Books, e-books, audio books, graphic novels, comics, magazines....what a great time to be alive! Not to be a downer, but in reality, I have more time left behind me, than I do ahead of me. Life can be cruel. But let's not let that dictate how and what I do with my time.
Currently I am participating in a readathon titled High Summer Readathon. If you haven't signed up yet, you still have plenty of time to do so. It is a month long event!
I have also discovered the magic of one so-called Storygraph. It is a site like Goodreads, but it is oh so much better. The feature I latched on to is called the Streak. Once turned on, a default streak — one page (or one minute) per day, or longer — is created for you and a new streak flame icon will appear on the homepage. It's filled in when you've successfully met the requirements of your streak for that time period. I am currently on a 32 day streak. My humble fulfillment time is 40 pages, or one hour, (yes! You can track audio book time as well!)
Using this web platform has encouraged me to ensure I read a little bit every day. I had built up a 7 day streak, and I wasn't going to stop there. It is easy to use, and the book recommendations are spot on. Try this lovely reading nugget. You will not be disappointed.
Anyways, as I am jumping around, I have only come here to say that I have created my 40page/1 hour schedule which will take me into the end of June next year. Every month I will upload the new schedule and let you know what readathon or other club I am joining along in. This will also help me stay on track. In the next post, I will share my August reading schedule for the \High Summer Readathon, and every month thereafter. I hope you are able to follow along and watch/comment on my progress. Stay safe and keep on reading!
