Being A Slow Reader in the Book Blogging Community

Being A Slow Reader in the Book Blogging Community

Until last year, I had never taken part in the Goodreads Challenge, and therefore had absolutely no idea how many books I read in a year. I was completely oblivious, bumbling my way through book after book, and never counting how many I was actually finishing in a week, a month, a year… However, last year I finally decided to take part in the Goodreads Challenge, and I actually really enjoyed it! I feel like it encouraged me to read more, and I liked having that record of everything I’d read in the year, as opposed to completely forgetting everything… Read more »

Can a non-reader become a reader?

Can a non-reader become a reader?

My sister is my best friend, and we’re alike in so many ways. We both have the same taste in music and drive around everywhere belting out our favourites. We’re the same size and have the same taste in clothes and may as well have a joint wardrobe. We both love going to the cinema, ice-skating and trips to Tesco ‘for a couple of bits’ where we actually spend an obscene amount of money on what amounts to a whole load of rubbish.
