How do you do it?
How do you finish that many books in a year?
How do you find the time between being a wife, significant other, partner, mother, father, friend, employee, employer, to have the ability to finish so many books? So. Many. Books.
The other day I took note that I am one book away from increasing my Goodreads counter to one-hundred. Which is a great feat considering I only started with 20 books thinking that was a lot and I had no chance of succeeding.
I’ve noticed a lot of people will have two- or three-hundred books and I’m just floored when they have the “audacity” to increase their goal by another 10 or 20. What are you doing that I’ve missed in the reading equation.
Am I blogging too much and reading too little? Am I too detail oriented or just not a fast enough reader. These are questions I started pondering nearly a year ago, and I’ve yet to find the answer amongst the Blogger Confessions of my book-blogging colleagues.
Perhaps a passerby will be able to enlighten me on the how-to’s of the book blogging industry. I’ve clearly been doing this for a while now and thought I had a good amount of knowledge in what needed to be known, but now I don’t. What’s the trick, the catch to be able to read such an astronomical amount of literature and still manage to get the right amount of sleep every night. Do my books have too many pages? But I promise I make up for that by reading children’s picture books. What do I need to know? What have I missed?
There is no toolbox you can pick up at the Google Store to help a reviewer get started. There are things you pick up along the way. Maybe I took the wrong path or just didn’t ask enough questions in the beginning. Oh the questions, there will always be questions. I hope one day I can find somebody to answer them all.
