I will be putting up a post going more in-depth about the entire experience of doing the book challenge. Basically, I was going into a big rant that felt like it would not fit here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBCw4_XgouA This goes for the entire challenge but it really came into my mind while being close to finishing David Copperfield.

A couple of things I said to my future self:

  • Don’t Be afraid to dump books.  I was not at 24 books.
  • Don’t be afraid to put books down until later. I actually have not put any books down exactly. I think that I will stick to my list until all the books are finished or dumped.
  • So this is a win for you either you can finish, dump, or make progress in a bunch of books. Reached the 29 books in this combination.
  • Do not be afraid to take a day off. Taking a day off did not happen but I was familiar with taking the time to watch shows instead of reading all day.
  • Do not force yourself or feel that you need to finish books. (Remember the 100 book challenges) You are not going to read 30 books in 30 days because you do not usually read 30 books in a month. Also, you dump about 30 books in a month. So do not stress yourself because you will not obtain this goal. I will probably read 7-8 books at the end of the challenge because for every 1 book I finish I dump 4. pretty much.
  • Please, do not spend all day reading! Take a break play The Sims and watch your Asian shows. I did some of this. I need to find some really good Asian shows to marathon. So I cannot fall back on I have nothing to watch excuse.
