The main focus on my mind right now has been the epic reading slump of 2020!
When Ive got absolutely nothing to do, you would think I could finish the unread books on my shelves…right?
I’m even more distracted and deterred from reading, now, more than ever! While picking up a few old favourites is great, I’m not closer to meeting reading goals.
Should I even be tracking my reading?
Is tracking one of the factors putting me in a reading slump?
I know, I know!
Comparison is one of my worst flaws. I shouldn’t be comparing my progress to anyone else’s. This year is all about meeting the goals I set for myself, to the best of MY ability.
- Reading is for fun and enjoyment and so from now on, I’m going to focus on reading when I feel like it. While I would love to exceed last year’s Goodreads challenge and read more than 54 books, 2021 is going to be the beginning of a jam-packed year of work and study. Here’s to sticking to habits and making changes happen!
- The only books I’ll buy will be the new arrivals and finales to my favourite series…another goal I hope to meet is ordering less books online.
- How about travelling to a book store for once instead of shopping online?
There are so many wonderful bookstores and libraries to discover in Sydney and I think I’m finally ready to explore them. When was the last time you went to a library or bookstore in-person?
It hits different when you’re in that room, surrounded by books and the smell of ink and pages 🙂
- I want to post more on this blog as well and read more non-fiction. SO PLEASE RECOMMEND ME SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITES! Areas of interest: mental health, nutrition, mythology, history, etc.
What are some of your goals for the year?

These are novels, but War with the Newts and Confederacy of Dunces are two of my favourites (I also love that you spell favourites with a “u”, which I do as well, even though I am an American.)
I’ll definitely have to check those out!! And yes, I’m Australian so we spell it with a ‘u’
