Well, regardless, it is Monday, so let's check out this week's question from Miz B at Should Be Reading ...
This week’s musing asks…
Do you have a reading goal for the year, such as __ books? Why or why not?
They are some bloggers out there who are so organized.
I was just trying to catch up on some of my bloggist reading today and ran across a few that impressed me with their methodical organization, their well-orderliness. Being as it is the beginning of a new month, many such blogs have recently posted either a list of what they read and reviewed last month, or even more impressive, what they plan to read this month. An actual list, all planned out...imagine that...wow.
And while part of me..the OCD part...admires this, longs to be able to do this, the other part of me, the lazy part, flees in the face of the work involved.
The lazy part wins.
You might notice that I put a number at the end of each of my review titles. It is just for my own amusement. That is as far as my record keeping goes.
I do not list.
I do not plan.
I do not count.
I am not very organized.
So no, I do not have a reading goal.
Or any sort of goal actually. ;-)
I read because I enjoy reading.
And then sometimes, I write reviews of the books I read, either to share a great one or warn you off a less than great one.
Goals and plans and lists makes reading, for me, too much like a job, a chore I need to do and I don't like to see reading that way.
I don't read to keep count of them. Honestly, I am too badly organized to keep track of them usually. And honestly, I read a lot of books that I don't review. So even the numbers on my reviews are rather pointless, since they bare no relationship to what I read. Have I mentioned(today)that I do not really enjoy writing reviews? And that I am lazy? And procrastinate? Sometimes, I just can't decide what I think of it. Sometimes I start enough book and forget about it.
Yes, if I got the book for review, or from Early Reviewer at Library Thing or Amazon Vine, yes, I review it. Otherwise, it is rather hit or miss.
Actually, to be truthful, I am a bit behind on those too.
Nothing that a few months off work wouldn't cure.
