1st Month of My Reading Journey

This year I decided to read more.

I learned a lot of things about my reading habits from last year like how I spend too much time on Reddit and Youtube and how I should branch out from traditional print books.

So I decided to go on a journey, a reading journey wherein this year I aspire to integrate reading into my daily life. I will establish firm reading routines just so I can read more books and actually understand them.

Starting from the month of January, I was able to read six books at the first month of 2021…

This year I’ve only read about 12 books, that’s a mix of audiobooks, e-books, and physical books. I know that I can certainly do better and read more books next year. I’ve been exposed to different ways to consume books and I’m going to use that to my advantage to read more and set a loftier reading goal.

I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t work based on my experiences this year, it goes without saying that we all have different approaches to reading and I’m merely sharing my experience that I think would help some people.

A poem.

they say when you’re a kid
that the world is yours to conquer
no truer lie could be said
so they say it when you’re younger

not everyone is destined to be
the greatest of the greats
the wisest of the wise
or with a talent that’s innate

but even I a mere uneventful person
do believe the world is mine to conquer
i have my own triumphs
i have my own victories

but to another person it could seem like nothing seeing a person driving along the trees he could never know what I’m feeling he might not even…
