I’m very excited to finish the summer by participating in #TheReadingQuest, which is hosted by Aenteen of Read at Midnight (click to view her sign-up post). I’m heading back to college next week, so I’m not sure how successful I’ll be, but I decided to give it a shot!
Whether you’re a member of Goodreads, or other book-related websites and organizations, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve been asked or have come across various features that allow you to set reading goals each year. These goals can vary significantly, ranging from the highly specific “I want to read __ books in 2016” to something as general as “I want to read more historical fiction.”
But these goals, do they do more harm than good? Instead of prompting us to read with increasing frequency, do they actually discourage us from the pastime?
