Friday Linkups - My Name is Lucy Barton
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
When you set a yearly reading goal, do you set it high to force yourself to meet that goal or do you keep it low and normally go over that goal anyway?
In the past I've made goals on the high side in order to push myself into reading more. But I've noticed in the last few years that what it ends up doing is keep me from taking any risks bookwise and keeps me from picking up chunkster books because I'm worried about making my goal. This year I set my goal pretty low and have been trying to push myself to take more risks and hopefully get at least 1 chunkster read!
There was a time, and it was many years ago now, when I had to stay in a hospital for almost nine weeks.
I can't imagine staying in the hospital for 9 weeks. The longest I've ever stayed in one was 3 nights and that was in the maternity ward!
Immediately he swooshed the curtain around me and this separated me from my mother.
I can imagine how much of a comfort it would be to have the doctor make some privacy for an exam. Privacy is not an easy thing to come by in a hospital!
So what do you think? Keep reading? What is your goal for the year and what are your reasons for setting it? Or not setting it?
