At the beginning of June I had about 8 different books on the go and I wasn’t finishing any of them. Then in a flurry, I finished 3 books in a week. That was a good week, I love the feeling of accomplishment you get when you finish a book!
Up until recently I’d been starting books but not necessarily ever finishing them. But I think that’s the nature of what I often read…books more along the self-help line and if they aren’t fully appealing to me, I’ll put them down and not finish them.
In June I switched this up a bit and to make sure I’m reading different types of books at the same time:
- books about self-help and/or writing (such as The Miracle Morning and Show Your Work);
- books for research (I’m working on a kids’ book which I think will be aimed at the 8-12 age bracket);
- books with Reuben (we’ve just had an overhaul and you can see his reading list here); and,
- books for fun (I haven’t read anything like this for months).
