How to Read 52 Books in One Year
3 Helpful Habits For Reading 52 Books in a Year
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 Kindle Unlimited.
Habit 3- Share your book experiences by posting quotes or book photos. Engage others in social conversation.
Now as you can see, this is very simple to follow. But you may wonder if reading will become boring. My answer is NO because I rotate authors, genres, and formats. Changing from fiction to nonfiction is like candy for my brain. Perhaps you have seen me share author quotes on social media? When you read these quotes, I hope to encourage you to read books too.
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 is the most relaxing time of day with less distraction.
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.
As a member of NetGalley, I am reading Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) books. Authors and publishers provide a digital version of their book before it’s published and I provide my feedback. My reviews are posted on my blog bookshelf.
If you have a book to recommend, tell me about it in the comments below. I like to know what my friends are reading and recommending.
To keep track of my reading challenge for the year, follow me on GoodReads.
