This year I’ve decided to jump back into reading and I’m taking the Goodreads Reading Challenge.  For the last couple of years, I’ve struggled to read like I used to when I was younger. Back in the day, I read a book a day.  Or a day and a half, if it was kind of long.  Nowadays, I’m lucky to get through a book in a few months.  With everything that I’ve got going on and other just random stuff, I’ve lost the ability to focus.  Adult ADHD is a thing, people.  Since I like to read, that’s a big problem for me.  Like a huge problem.  So this year, I set a goal to read 100 books by the year’s end.  Not 5, not 50, but 100 books.  I’m using Goodreads (feel free to click the link so we can be friends) to track my progress and to figure out what to read next.  Check out the video below for more info on the challenge, how I’m doing it and what I plan to read for January!

How many books are you planning to read this year?  Do you use Goodreads? Are you taking the Goodreads Reading Challenge?
