“This week’s musing asks…
Do you set goals for yourself, while reading? For example, “I want to get this book finished this weekend“, or “I will read __ pages today“, etc. Why, or why not?”
I do not set goals for myself on a regular basis but sometimes if I absolutely have to, I do it.
If I have been lugging around a particular book for a long time then I would make myself finish a certain number of pages everyday until I finish it.
If I am getting too lax with a reading challenge I am participating in then I set myself a goal of reading at least one book for it within the next week or so. Like right now I am ashamed with my progress in the 2012 Sci-Fi Challenge. So, I am making myself read My Name Is Legion by Roger Zelazny. Good news is I am liking it so far.
