A couple years ago, I set a goal of reading 12 books in a year, and I did it pretty easily. I decided to do it again this year, but I was pretty overwhelmed with graduate work. Thanks to the fact that I didn't set any rules on what kind of books, I've read two lower level reading books this last week to put myself on target for 12 books for the year.
Then again, after I finish this project, I am going to try to read a lot more. I'm starting to enjoy it a little more.
