I love reading. I have always been a reader for as long as I can remeber. Reading a good book can mean travelling to a whole other time or place.
If you sit down with a good book to read, it is as if you can go to an entirely different world, and be in a world of your own for a few hours. I notice that it also helps increase my vocabulary.
Now, I'm letting you in my own little secret... I so love the smell of the crisp pages of a new book. So even if I am in the technology industry, I still love a real book as compared to a digital one. Flipping through its pages is kind off therapuetic for me. Im old fashion like that.
But despite my love for books and reading, as a self-proclaimed bookworm unfortunately I am so "under read". Leisurely reading is indeed a luxury now a days.
Hey, if you really set your heart into something, you will always find time right?
And so this year, I will revive my love for reading by starting a goal of reading X number of books per year.
Considering that half of the year has gone by, I am targeting on 6 books for 2013. One book a month. Now, with all the juggling between work and domestic "divaness", I hope my target is not so ambitious.
So to kick-off this 6 books project, I have already compiled a list of books I have read here and I am hoping to increase it exponentially (hahaha!!!)
I am starting this project with this Grisham book which I gifted the hubby last summer.
Here's to more reading and an increased vocabulary for 2013. I wonder how new motherhood would fit into this. Well, all the best to me! :)
Do you enjoy reading books ? What kind of books do you like to read and who’s your favorite author/authors? What books will you be reading this year? Let's build a list!
