One thing I do on another blog where I write about video games and fiber arts (because those are related..) is post a monthly update / goals in order to give myself a bit of direction when it comes to these things. My life runs better with direction, otherwise I can spend hours just sitting and doing nothing at all, completely lost with whatever I had intended to do. That doesn’t meant I can’t go off track, it just means that during times when I need direction, it’s there.
- Finish reading volume 3&4 of Sunstone
- Finish reading Rogue Protocol (Murderbot #3)
- Finish 50% of The Book of Hedge Druidry: A Complete Guide for the Solitary Seeker
I have some non-reading but still book related goals to work on, too. I want to properly set up StoryGraph, which I’ve never used before but has come highly recommended by some friends. I also just downloaded their app, so I’d like to explore that in more depth. Maybe even do a post about some great book apps.
I’d also like to update my ‘My Book Pledge‘ page, which is a Canadian site sponsored by some of the larger publishing companies. They host a lot of competitions and I’ve been adding my books there for a number of years, very similar to the GoodReads book challenge that is hosted yearly.
These are not lofty goals, and I should be able to complete them with very little issue so long as I consciously make the time to read. The way I tend to work is that the more tired I am the less I want to read, which means in June I did very little reading because I was incredibly tired. In fact for the entire month of June I only finished reading one book, which was Sunstone volume 2.
I want to do better this month.
Have you set yourself up with any reading goals?

You know, I’m starting to find those days where I’m too tired to do much… if the book is right, curling up on the armchair, getting comfy and switching off from the world, nothing but me and my book. It’s just right. You get to relax your tired self, and you’re doing exactly one thing. Obviously doesn’t work when you’re the kinda tired where focus isn’t there, but yeah. ^^
I think I’ve been in a ‘I’m so tired, but my brain just won’t shut off’ phase (thanks stress & anxiety) which prevents and hinders me from reading – but – if I could find the right book it would help me relax.
Yeah, I get that completely. Hope you find a way to relax more a little this month. ❤
