On 21 February 2015, I started both My Expanding Bookshelf and my Goodreads account. Before then, I didn't really keep track of how many books I was reading. Cause laziness really...
However, since then, I read 58 books with 16,015 pages in 2015. That's 1.09 books a week! Averaging at 43.9 pages a day! I think that's pretty damn good. Especially, when I tie in the fact that I was working 2 jobs for 5 months of the year and then quit them both to start my first full-time job in September. I leave my house by 7.30am and get home at 6.00pm. I honestly have no idea how I found the time to read at all never mind read 58 books. And that doesn't even take into account the time blogging takes up!
I'm honestly mind blown by the idea that some people can read 150 to 200 books a year!
I mean how on earth is that possible? Fitting that in with family, jobs and other commitments seems impossible to me. I applaud anyone that manages this!
Before I started my blog, back in February 2015, I thought I was a really fast reader. It turns out that although I'm fairly fast, I'm nowhere near as fast compared to other bloggers. But you know what, I'm okay with that. I can still read a book in a day if I really want to and have the time to.
That being said I'm hoping to break past this record this year. And maybe even *fingers crossed* get close to 70 books. That would make my year! I'm hoping this will be easier now that I'm more settled at my new job now and have sort of established a nice routine now.
So, how many books do you read a year? Are you one of the superhumans that read over 150 books? And if so, HOW on earth do you find the time and WHAT are you reading?
