My 2015 Reading Goals

The last couple of years have allowed me to read for fun more than any other time in my life. Well, in elementary school, I would crawl into my parents' bed with a stack of books and a box of crackers and read for hours on end so I guess I got a lot of reading done then (sorry for all of the cracker crumbs, parents!). So okay, elementary school aside, I've been reading way more in my 30s than I ever did in my 20s. I didn't have time to read for fun during my undergraduate years. Then there were a couple of years after college that I spent living overseas where I spent a lot of my free time just bicycling around trying to procure enough groceries to feed myself for the next week. When I had down time, I didn't have the capacity to concentrate on a book. Graduate school didn't allow for much time to read for fun. Now, with no more school or homework, there is time to read. That's one great thing about working - no homework!

All of that to say that I haven't really set any reading goals for myself over the last several years because I was just enjoying reading for fun again. However, this year, I am ready for a bit more structure in addition to just reading a ton of whatever I want. So I am going to do Modern Mrs. Darcy's Reading Challenge. It looks like fun. Take a look and see if you're interested too!
