In 2018, I changed my view on New Year’s resolutions. I wanted fewer aspirations that were bolted onto my life and rather fundamentally switched to a mind-set of how to become the person I wanted to be. I believe strongly in growth and self improvement, but reading is one thing I have always dithered on. However, as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to really appreciate both the benefit mentally but more importantly the sheer joy of a fantastic read.
So to become a more well-rounded individual I wanted to read more. How do I track that? Stats of course! I figured 12 would be a nice round number. One per month – how hard can that be?
Of course, if you have any suggestions, please let me know!

1 thought on “Reading List:- 2018”
Kafka on the shore by Haruki murakami had me hooked couldn’t put it down and I don’t read alot of books. Highly recommend it transcends a regular story to a full blown imaginative experience
