I need to learn how to care less about trivial things and what other people think about me because I’m wasting so much time and it’s not healthy.

tomartyr:

I can’t tell if my goodreads challenge to read 52 books in a year is giving me momentum to read, or if I am reading purely to achieve that goal.

I think the problem lies in moving too quickly from one book to another. I read on the train and there’s only so many times you can look outside the window for like two and a half hours per day so I move on pretty quickly.

I think if I forced myself to read slower and think about it once I’ve finished, it wouldn’t feel like I’m reading to meet a goal.
