Reading more, not dying

6 Apr

This is how my victory will look.

It’s only day 6 of Read More or Die but it feels longer because of how intensely I’ve been reading. I’ve finished three more books since the 1st of April (granted, they were fairly short but I make up the rules here : P) and read 354 pages.

The competitive aspect of ReadMOD is incredibly motivating. I hate to admit it, but I have a ruthless streak and the image of the Japanese lovers flicking through their mangas and racing to the top ten has me rushing towards the nearest book to get an extra few pages read. It’s made me very picky about reading material. I’ve rejected about seven books because they seemed too difficult or not my style. I want to be able to whizz through the book and up my page count.

If you didn’t sign up this time, I’d recommend going for it in the next round. A month is a good amount of time to focus on reading and eyeing up your position ranking page will have you addicted to reading like it’s cocaine *twitch,  sniff* @_@

I’m looking forward to seeing how much my Dutch has improved at the end of the month!
