Remember all those possibilities that I mentioned last week for my own extended readathon – along with Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon on Oct. 26 – at the end of the month because I’ll be recuperating after knee surgery?
Now forget them.
Because that’s what I’m doing.
Every so often, at least once or twice a year, I start with a clean slate and that time has come again. To that end, along with scrapping all those possibilities mentioned last week, I’ve returned everything that I’ve checked out, both physically and virtually. I’ve also canceled all my holds.
Because once again I discover that I’m not reading what I want to read – at least not what I want to read right now. Either I’m reading what others want me to read or books I think I should read. I look at the stack of books on my desk and the ebooks on my Kindle…and I sigh. So as of today, I’m pushing the reset button on my reading. What will I read next? I don’t know yet, but after I figure it out and have read it, I’ll let you know.

I do the same thing sometimes. I get so caught up in what I “should” read, or in challenges that I lose track of what I want to read. Good for you for recognizing that.
