June was yet another slow reading month. I only managed to finish 3 books in June, but, again, quantity should not be the goal of reading. The times we’re living in are still very strange where anxiety is still very prevalent, so it’s only natural not to be on top of your reading goals.
Although I’ve been self-isolating since late March, I haven’t been reading as much as I thought I would. It’s probably due to the sheer anxiety and emotional rollercoaster we’ve all been feeling since all this started.
But, for me at least, my main goal each year is to read at least a book each week. And in May I have exceeded that goal. I don’t think that putting too much pressure on the amount is helpful right now. Quality and variety are what I look for in my reading, and thankfully that has been achieved in May. I’ve read a total of 6 books in May, however, I’ll only discuss 5 in this post.
