I am not one to talk- I get obsessed with different things- I set goals -for example listening this year a goal in my music listening to 365 albums from 1969- but to me that seems manageable. I know a few people and have read about folks on different blogs with the goal of reading 100 books a year or whatever number they have. The first thing that comes to mind when I hear that is- wouldn’t that influence the type of books you read? I tend to read big books- as far as how many pages you do. Recently I chose Stephen Ambrose’s book on Lewis and Clark- Undaunted Courage as the book for the month in the non-fiction book club I run. There were seven at the book club- the only one who finished the book was me. The book is around 500 pages. I learned my lesson back to books 300 pages and shorter. Back to this goal of 100 books a year- wouldn’t having that goal influence you not to tackle a big book? Pick an 800 pager and that is going to slow you down on that goal? Anyone have that goal? How do you go about your reading? Below is an article on that topic from Atlantic.
