|I got this lovely journal for Christmas.|
There are couple of things I’ve noticed about my reading in the last few years. First, I don’t read near enough for pleasure anymore. At least I don’t think I read as much as I used to; I’ve never kept track. This makes me sad. Reading has always been a source of joy for me – why would I deny myself that pleasure?
The second thing I’ve noticed is that I’ve been having a hard time finishing books. This didn’t used to be a problem. I used to finish books even when I didn’t particularly enjoy them. But I currently have at least two books on my tablet and a couple of paper books I haven’t finished, not because they’re not good books, but because, well, I don’t really know why. This lack of finishing power kind of matches an issue I’ve struggled with lately in my writing. I’ve got way too many partly finished manuscripts I haven’t finished; I talked about this problem in a post couple of weeks ago. I seem to have developed a bad case of monkey-mind. Look! A shiny object over there!

So, that’s my commitment for the year. As a way to keep on track, I’ll be checking in periodically here on Word Wranglers throughout the year to see how I’m doing. Wish me luck!
What are your reading plans for the year? Do you prefer to read print books, ebooks or audiobooks?
