Jeeka ☾ (jeeka) | 54 comments For 2018, I want to become a more consistent reader. I tend to read 3 books back to back and then not read anything for the rest of the month. So I would like to try and read 30-50 pages a day.

Goals:
1) Read 30 books
2) Read my Shelf - not going to set my self a certain number of books, just want to make an effort to read the books I own already.
3) Re-read 5 books

UPDATE (05/04/2018): So far, I am failing at this! I didn't anticipate life getting so hectic, but I'm ready to dedicate time to reading again. Reading through these goals, I'm unsure if these are what I want to achieve still. Might evaluate and change up these goals over the coming months.

UPDATE (02/05/2018): ^ i lied, i still suck
