As some of you know, the Goodreads app allows you to set a yearly reading goal, aka the number of books you aim to get through in a year. Before I got my PS4 a few years back, I was easily reaching 70+ or so. But once the gaming addiction kicked in, that went right out the window! I know, I know. I betrayed my beloved books.
HOWEVER, this year, I made a deal with myself: because there were no PS4 games I was eager to play ASAP, I stopped playing on it. Full stop. Ideally, this will mean that, when I introduce gaming time again, I can cope with only an hour or so a day without feeling like I’m missing out. So far so good. I’ve not played anything for weeks. And the impact on my reading goal? I’m halfway through my 24th book of 2019…so it seems that I’ll absolutely SMASH my goal of 70 🙂
