Yes, you read that right. My New Year's Resolution is to read less. I'm addicted to reading. I love getting lost in a story. Problem is... I can't put the books down once I start. It isn't out of the norm for me to read 4 books or more per week. I'm an extremely fast reader. I do more of a skim read so that's part of the reason I can read so many books. The other reason is that I just spend a lot of time reading.
What's wrong with reading so much? I'm lazy. Three hours on the couch can fly by like it's nothing when I'm lost in a book. I say I'm so busy that I don't have time to blog, don't work out as much as I should, don't get as much done around the house as I would like. Imagine all the things I could get done if I didn't spend so much time reading.
I'm not sure how to go about reading less though. Limit myself to two books per week? Or only let myself read 1 hour each evening? Maybe make a list of all the things I want to accomplish and not let myself read until I've worked on 1 item off my list?
On a side note: I just read Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender. It's about a haunted house, a possession, highschool stereotypical cliques, and the one girl that feels like she doesn't fit in anywhere. As a YA book, it was pretty good. Not overly scary, pretty easy read, and a mystery to be solved.
I didn't realize it was part of a series until I just happened to look it up. So now I have to read the 2nd book. I'll let you know how it goes.
