23 Thoughts I Had About The Goodreads Reading Challenge

readingchallenge

      1. (1 January) I killed this challenge last year, now it’s time to overachieve
      2. Hmm, these folks vow 100 books? What’s wrong with them!bulls
      3. Most of my friends have vowed 100 books! What’s wrong with me?
      4. Amma stay real. 20.
      5. Real but ambitious. 50.
      6. Who am I kidding, I hardly managed 15 last year.
      7. Yeah, 15 – a third of them being the A Song of Ice and freaking Fire novels.
      8. Most of these amateurs are reading 200-pagers.giphy (2)
      9. 50 is a piece of cake.
      10. I don’t need another ludicrous target to suck the joy out of life.
      11. I am doing this for myself, I got nothing to prove.
      12. 30 sounds reasonable.
      13. I ll be done by February.
      14. (mid-July) “7 books behind schedule.” Thanks for the kind reminder.giphy (4)
      15. You mean thing.
      16. Who do you think you are, you wretched app, to call me inadequate.
      17. Did you bother to notice I’ve read four Diana Gabaldon books? 1000-pagers, hello? Should count for 3 at least. Who’s behind now, arithmetic moron.
      18. That’s not the end. Just wait.
      19. I’ll show ya.giphy (1)
      20. It’s not your fault. You are just doing your job.
      21. I got this.
      22. There is nothing like a miraculous recovery.giphy (5)
      23. (If not I can adjust the target, can’t I)

  1. Hahaha I loved this post!! I also feel SO conflicted about the challenge. I’d never want reading to become a chore, or something I HAD to do to reach a target. But at the same time, I procrastinate quite a lot, so challenges give me the motivation I need.

    1. Yes, right! It has to be for leisure and fun and not caring how much or what or when, but at the same time it feels good and neat. The weird thing for me is that, unlike chores, checking books of a TBR list is bittersweet – you want to finish the book, but you don’t want to finish the book; and with some books it’s such a loss and I dream I have not read them yet
