This year, I'm taking a different approach. No set goals, no numbers. Just a mantra. Widen my reading. In 2015 I want to do this by:
- Reading more books in translation
- Reading more books on nonfiction topics that I don't know much about, instead of sticking to the same old areas (history mainly). Science nonfiction especially.
- Reading more books by authors that identify as a different ethnicity to myself, who are also not white British or white North American.
- Reading more books by authors from my country of origin.
By not pressurising myself with a specific goal, but publicising my process and progress here (I want to update on this topic from time to time), hopefully its something that will just incorporate itself into my reading life. Here's hoping anyway . . . we can do nothing but try!!
