books-768426_640Q:ย Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges? (submitted by Kristin @ย Lukten av Trykksverte)

A: I have tried a few challenges, but I have a really bad habit of not being able to keep up with such things. I last about a week or so and then I find myself feeling restricted by the demands of a challenge. I definitely can’t make read-a-thons happen with my current work and life schedule. Maybe some day when I’m not working 2 jobs and am constantly distracted by a bunch of other things, but for now, I’m going to stick with trying to keep up with the reading obligations I have signed on for with my job and blogging hobby.

EDIT: I do set myself a goal on Goodreads every year, but I don’t really think of it as a challenge. I just read as much as I can, whenever I can, and if I meet the goal then I make it higher and higher until the end of the year.
