Just read & enjoy it

Add caption
I'm a person who reads a lot of books every month, at least over 20, sometimes even over 30 books. I'm a fast reader and use the time I spend on the train five days a week to read, read and read. Plus reading is one of my favourite hobbies, so I make sure to always have some extra time to do it.

When I talk about how many books I read some people seem to be in awe or even intimidated, and this is not the kind of reaction I want. Every person is different & special. Every reader is different & special. Every reader has his/her own way to read and that's exactly how it should be. Don't ever let anybody or anything make you feel bad about what you read, how you read and so on. It doesn't matter how many books you read as long as you enjoy it. It doesn't matter what you read as long as you enjoy it. It doesn't matter how you read as long as you enjoy it. Just read and enjoy it.

  1. Good post and good point. People seem to be in awe of my reading too, but honestly I don't think it is the least more special than other people who read.
    Reading is reading and should be embraced no matter what.

    1. Love your second sentence, it's so true.

  2. Very True. If I did not need so much time to write reviews, I could read more books. But I like to share my thoughts, and try to promote the books I enjoyed.

    1. That's exactly the reason why I'm book blogging. It's nice to share my thoughts on books and I love to promote the good books I read.

  3. I think alot of people need to hear this. I can say that after letting go of the numbered book challenges. A lot of people make reading about numbers. I have never heard you say what number you are on which I appreciate. It is not about numbers it is about enjoyment. Don't take the fun out of reading. Kind of on topic, I think. Someone was amazed that I was reading Roots because it is big. They said they would never read it because of its size. Don't let size scare you away from a good book.

    1. Exactly! Some readers can be motivated by looking at how many books they read/plan to read, but I also know that others are intimidated by them. And who cares about how big a book is? As long as it sounds good I'm willing to give it a try.

  4. Of course your right Sabrina. And since I've learned reading I've read my whole life. But I know how many books I've read during school and studies and sometimes I am sad that I don't read so much right now. On the other hand there is my family and I love spending time with them (would be really sad if not;). For me a fixed number of books per year should incite me to go on with reading (I'm a fast reader with good books but could read on for ages with moderate or poor books). So I could see the point behind some book counting...

    1. I don't think at all that book counting or book challenges are something you shouldn't do. They may not work for me, but I know that they motivate other readers to read more and that's always something good. To each their own. I just think that numbers aren't everything and that constantly comparing yourself to what/how other readers read isn't very healthy.
