Honestly I thought that when it was finally summer and I had no more classes or exams that I would definitely read more. However, I don't have class anymore and I have all the time in the world and I'm still not reading much. Actually I was reading more back when I was in school. I really want to read I get all excited about reading and then I remember something I saw on the internet , or a youtube video I really want to see or watching a new episode of Gilmore Girls (my new old obsession).
Then I watched this video by Amira (http://www.youtube.com/user/AmirasBookReviews) and apparently she's in the same slump as me. She suggested a couple of things that I found very useful.
1- To set a goal.
She was talking about setting a goal of books you want to read during the summer however I'm going to set a daily amount of pages I want to read.
2- Read shorter book.
I'm going to try reading a couple of light reads nothing too complicated and more on the lines of beach reads.
3- To read outside.
Here in Montreal the weather hasn't been that great and it's been raining for about a week but I decided to go read in a cafe and get out of the house where there is no internet connection or a tv to distract me.
I hope I'll finally be able to get through my current book.
Is someone out there relating to the way I feel about reading?
