I have mentioned this before, I do not read books the way I used to. From being a voracious reader during my childhood and teenage years and being a frequent reader (3-4 novels in a month) in my 20s and once I started working to even a few books a year in my early 30s. But by the time I hit 34-35 I stopped reading as much.
I prefer to get entertained via Youtube these days and I do not plan on reading much. The last time I read a bunch was in 2010 when my old desktop computer died and I had to wait 3 weeks for my salary, for which I was getting a substantial raise as well, hit and I could pay for a new laptop. During that time I read a lot of books and Reader’s Digest had these large books with shorter versions of novels or something and I read through all of them. Ofcourse I also slept a lot, went out to coffeeshops a lot and watched a lot of tv.
This upcoming 9 day vacation that I have I plan to read just one book. I will be spending a few days in a hotel room and I plan to re-read my favourite novel of all time, Stephen King’s It. I don’t think I will have time for more. But I do hope to read a few more books this year. I will try to make it 1 per month or is that too ambitious?
