..books. Hardbacks, novels, stories; I just can’t seem to finish reading a story-telling book.
I would forcibly buy books based on recommendations from friends, the book would immediately arrive in the post, I would open and admire the glossy front cover, have a read of the blurb, start..and then would barely make it to chapter 2 on the first go.
Laziness? Hardly! Lack of interest?
Nope! Interest is there, commitment to read a book, apart from the Bible, consistently is difficult for me.
Being an online journalist, I regularly read articles, bulletins, and watch documentaries and random stories every day.
I remember attending a talk hosted by motivational speaker Trent Shelton, advising us all to read as much as possible, as reading encourages growth.
Now, growth is a super important word and process of life for me. Reading books isn’t the only way I can grow, but it’s something I want to start doing properly again.
I was given my first book by my brother at Christmas in 2011. It was Ugly by Constance Briscoe. I clinged onto that book reading it daily, and still remember what happened page by page till this day.
I want my reading mojo back!
Book club? Setting reminders? Get a kindle to make the idea of a hardback less daunting?
Anything! Please let me know of your best reading tips – I am determined to finish the stack of books that stay staring at me in my bedroom…
