I've found solace in short works, comics mostly. But I do miss sitting down with prose, so after learning about Jenny from Adultishbooks' 30 books in 30 days project, I decided to spin this idea to fit into my schedule.
I'm tackling a 15 books in 30 days (#15in30) challenge. With lots of birthdays, travel, and events in April, I think it's far more likely I can swing a book every two days than a book a day. Here's my plan:
- Graphic novels, novels, and novellas of 200ish pages or less
- Most of my reading will happen at work during lunch, breaks, and in the evening
- Weekends rule! I have no problem wiping out two or three books in a weekend to free up some weekday wiggle room
- Readathon is April 25, so that's a built-in boost
It might sound extreme to some of you that I'm "forcing" myself to read x number of books, but my problem lately is that I often don't prioritize my reading, and I need something to help me get back in the groove. I really miss it, and I need a jolt.
My project officially started on the evening of April 6, and I've already completed my first book:
The Red Notebook, by Antoine Laurain, was a charmer! Liberty described it best as, "While You Were Sleeping in Paris!"
They're both going to get read, I'm just not sure which order.
I got some amazing short book recommendations on Twitter, but I'd love to gather some more, so be sure to leave your own recommendations in the comments.
