My Reading Challenge

When I was thinking about my reading challenge, I was mainly focused on the types of books I was going to read. I realized it isn’t all about the types of books but also the amount of time I am going to read. I want to set a goal of about 4-5 hours of reading a week and I also want to make a goal of getting all of my reading done before Friday if possible. I would also like to make a goal to read before bed because sometimes I watch tv before bed when I could be reading and relaxing. For this week’s reading, I picked a few Mo Willems books and other random children’s books. I picked these because Mo Willems is one of my favorite authors and I love reading his books! For the rest of the semester, I want to switch every week from children’s books to young adult and middle school books. I really enjoyed the book I read last week and would love to read more books like it.

  1. I think you set some good goals for yourself. I liked that you decided to try to read 4-5 hours a week as one of your goals. Also, I have always struggled with reading before bed, but I would like to know how it works for you!

  2. Time goals can be very effective when you’re trying to incorporate reading into an already busy schedule of school, work, life. I read before bed every night–sometimes only 5 minutes, other times closer to 30. I definitely finish a lot more books each year because I carve out those minutes. I try to read one picture book a day and always have at least two middle grade or YA books going (usually more because I read every day to my kids). I know I’ve got to do a lot of reading so that I am prepared to make recommendations to my students!

  3. Getting all of your reading done before Friday sounds like a really good idea to me. I bet if you sat down and read a little bit before bed every night it would be very relaxing and help you get all of your reading done in a decent amount of time. Before bed is a good time because you may not have many distractions.
