So I realize that I am already 3 months behind but I want to do this challenge! No, I AM going to do this challenge. Here are the following reasons why:
Free time: I am in the position right now where I have ample free time. As much as I love Netflix binging and sightseeing in beautiful California weather – now is the best time for me to do a challenge like this.
Opportunity to declutter: I have so many books in my “to read” pile – finally reading these books will hopefully free up my space. I will also try my best not to add more into this collection. Read then sell, trade, or donate – this is going to be system!
Seeking inspiration: My creative side has remained dormant these last few years. I really want to start writing again (e.g. poetry, stories, etc). I believe forcing myself to read 50 books this year will help encourage my creativity again.
Bragging rights: Hey, I think that this is a valid a reason as any! How many people can say they’ve read 50 books in a year and have done so voluntarily? Yes, I am totally in this for the bragging rights! 😉
