One of my favorite habits is reading books. When books keep my attention, I have less time for social media, electronic games, and television. My favorite entertainment is reading books daily. In order to read 52+ books in a year, I set tiny habits and goals. Below are my helpful tips.
3 Helpful Habits For Reading Books Daily
Habit 1- Have easy access to books. Kindle books make it possible to carry stacks of books- without the weight.
Habit 2- Download free books from the library or from Kindle Unlimited. (“As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.”)
Habit 3- Share your book experiences by posting quotes or book photos. Engage others into social conversation.
Now as you can see, this is very simply to follow. But you may wonder if reading will become boring. My answer is NO because I rotate authors, genres, and format. Changing from fiction to nonfiction is like candy for my brain. The language and sentence structure of books captivates my interest.
Perhaps you have seen me share author quotes on social media? When you read these quotes, you’ll see what fascinates me.
3 Goals to Read 52 Books in a Year
My first goal is to read one chapter a day, minimum.
My second goal is to finish one (or more) books a week. Looking at the Table of Contents, I divide the number of chapters by seven to find my specific measurable goal.
My third goal is to read before bed. This the most relaxing time of day with less distraction.
My neighbor belongs to a book club and enjoys a monthly gathering with food, books, and laughter. My local church meets for book club discussions too.
The Bible Cafe™ book club has been a great hangout for over 10 years. Recently, I transferred this Facebook group with 14,000 women to missionary Stasia Nielson. She is now leading the book club under the LifeVerse Books ministry, where I participate as a guest rather than a leader.
I’m still reading books each day- with a goal of 52+ books in a year.
