A Nigerian lady, Glory Abah, has revealed that she read 27 books in January, 2019. According to the lady who is also a writer, she’s hoping to read about 400 books by the end of the year.
“So I have always wondered exactly how many books I read in a year. I usually estimated 200 or more as the case may be. So I decided to keep count this year and in January, we have 27 books in total.
How did I do it?
1. I always have a book am currently reading. Always! Normally, when I come across good authors, I usually get all their books in bulk and binge read all. If you go through my page, you will notice that I read mostly Penny Reid’s books this month. This leaves me with enough books to last me a while.
2. I use every spare moment to read.Normally, I stay awake till 2am, reading. This is not compulsory but when I have an interesting book at hand, I don’t know how to keep it down. I also read when I eat. I find the time between chewing and the next spoonful boring, so I use it to read or watch a movie.
3. I love reading.
It’s the second thing I cannot do without. Like an addiction. Reality is slow, but in books, I can read about an entire lifetime, centuries even and get my closure. Books give me a warm fuzzy feeling, makes me feel like I am part of something bigger, bigger than Glory Abah, bigger than Nigeria. It makes me feel like I am connected to the rest of the world.
The years journey is just beginning. I am hoping to read up to 400 books or more by the end of the year. Count with me. ”
