Book Blogger Hop - 11/20 - 11/26

 Question of the Week: 

Do you read every day? If so, do you have a "page goal?"

My Answer:

I can't say I read every day even though I would like to.

Life gets in the way.

I do not have a page goal when I read.

  1. If there were more hours in each day, I would certainly read every day! I usually don't have a page goal, either. But sometimes I will set one (if I need to finish up a book for a review). I hope you're having a good reading week, Elizabeth. I've been away for a few days and am now catching up with my blogging. :)

    1. Nice to see you are back.

      It is difficult to read every day and just as difficult to make a page goal.

  2. There are definitely days where I only read a page. I think reading is so much part of my nightly routine that I can't go to bed and actually sleep without at least reading a paragraph.

    1. It is nice to read before bed. That sounds great about your routine.

  3. I read every day, except when life gets in the way. My page goal depends on the length of the book and how easy it is to read it. If I'm using Kindle it is easy to set a goal like 10-20% each day until completing the book.

  4. I try to read every day but I haven't had much chance to read this week. I have a feeling it's going to be like this for the rest of the year.

  6. I've had to throw page goals out the window. I just try to read as quickly as I can (every day).

  7. I never have page goals - its my hobby, not a job. I manage to read most days, if only a couple of pages before bed on principle, so I don't feel like I'm depriving myself from what I love. Weekends are generally the only times I'm able to really dig in and read for hours!

    1. I just enjoy my books. No goals.

      I do have to step things up if I need a review to be completed, but I am quite organized so everything gets done. :)

  8. I usually try to read 10 - 15% at a time. It's mainly so I won't lose interest in the book. I had books where I never got past that point and would never pick up the book again. Besides, that's typically what I can read (depending on the length of the book) during my lunch break at work. It's a great way to just relax in the middle of my busy day.

    1. Reading is very relaxing.

      You have a good plan.

  9. Hi Elizabeth,

    I tend to do most of my reading very early in the morning, whilst I am having breakfast and coffee and when I am the only one up and about!

    I never set myself page goals, as that would only encourage me to rush through the words, when I do try to savour the books I read and make the experience as relaxing as possible.

    Evenings are generally filled with blog preparation, although there are just never enough hours to achieve one of my founding principles, to review every book I read and for that I always feel guilty.

    A simple question, but writing the answer down, really made me think about the balance between reading and blogging that I actually achieve.

    Have a good weekend :)

    Yvonne

      Sounds like you have a wonderful plan for your reading.

  10. I'm reading two books at the same time which is something I didn't do or didn't want to do in the past. I read before bedtime, reading a chapter from each book at least.

    1. I can't do that.

      One at a time is the only way I can read. :)

      Thanks for stopping, Stefanie.
