Hello, beautiful readers!
Now that 2017 is here I am left contemplating all that was accomplished in 2016. It was a successful year of personal growth for me, and believe it or not I owe much of that growth to books!
Yup, that’s right dear friends, reading has helped transform me mentally, physically and creatively throughout this past year.
In 2016 I committed myself to reading 30 books, a hefty goal for me. As the year began I slowly started gaining enthusiasm around this goal and soon I was flying through books of all kind.
I tracked my progress on my Goodreads. It has been an endeavor that I am so happy I committed to. Unfortunately, I did not reach 30 books but I did finish 28, yay! You can see my progress below or find more detail on my Goodreads.
Despite not reaching my 2016 goal I have decided to make an even bigger one for this year.
My new goal is… Read 35 books by the end of 2017.
So in light of my renewed love of reading, I would like to invite you all along to transform yourself this new year! Join me in committing yourself to reading this year.
How will it work?
Step 1: Sign up for a Goodreads account if you do not already have one, this way you can keep track of your progress easily along with other people doing the challenge.
Step 2: Choose a commitment level. Make sure your goal is challenging enough but not so difficult that it is unachievable. It can be anything from 10 books to 52 books the join the 2017 reading challenge at Goodreads.
Step 3: Comment on this post with your Goodreads link and let us know how many books you will be committing to for 2017. That way we can add each other and keep up the motivation. Make sure you update your progress throughout the year!
What are you waiting for? Start reading!
I will be writing posts throughout the year sharing what books I have enjoyed and suggest, and I urge you all to do the same!
Reading really can transform your life, take it from me. This year has been a whirlwind of growth and I owe a huge part of that to my love of books.
And it all started with one little commitment.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up, pick a goal and start reading!
Happy reading everyone!
