Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy on Ramblings of a Coffee Addict. Each week, bloggers answer a different question about their own lives or reading habits.
This week’s is going to be quick and simple, because I don’t have a whole lot to say about it. I prefer to try and make a full post out of these questions when I can, rather than quick one off, but here goes…
Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?
I don’t! Not really. I do tend to set my Goodreads Challenge every year, but I don’t take it quite seriously. I am trying to do a better job about reading more than I have in previous years. Usually I set my reading challenge at 24 – a book every other week – and up it when I get close.
Really, it sort of feels like cheating.
I’ve never failed the Goodreads Challenge because I start easy and escalate as I meet goals.
I see these reading challenges all over the place! Booktube-a-thon… there’s one going around now that I’m practically tempted to try: the Reading Quest. I guess I don’t participate because I like to take books at my own pace. I always read books for school and kept up with assignments, but I find things are immensely more enjoyable when I take them at my own pace, and choose my own books.
A lot of the reading challenges require specific books, as well. Not that I don’t want to read books with a little more of this or that… and I have over 300 books of my TBR. Yup, that’s right, I’m actually being crushed by my TBR. I’d like to read that first, then go from there!
So those are my excuses.
Maybe someday I will participate in a readathon or reading challenge, but today is not that day.
