“I have determined that what most often interrupted my reading time this year was mindless social media scrolling,” Rebecca says in her latest column.
Last year I failed.
Epicly really. I challenged myself to read 45 books in 2019. My reading stats came back for the year and I’ve read, brace yourself, 18.
I consider myself an avid reader. But 17 books in a year is paltry on the avid reader front. Sure, it’s about a book and a half a month, but I was aiming for a book a week!
According to my Goodreads stats, my 18 books translate to 7,000 pages. At 250 words per page, that means I read around 1.7 million words. That made me feel a little bit better.
