I Read 50-Plus Books Every Year: Here’s How I Do It
But then what do I know. After being a powerhouse for a few years, I have fallen face-first onto the pavement this year.
Hmmm, I don't believe that Rebecca Deczynski has a real job that actually takes too much of her time...
I have never counted the books I've read. I wouldn't know.
Really interesting. I've recently tried to read more, and my methods have involved
A) joining this forum - social contract makes me more likely to stick to a plan, and certainly the last 2 books I probably wouldn't have finished without knowing I could see what others thought about them, and
I've tried something I heard Patrick Stewart (the Star Trek/X-Men actor, not the OSR game designer) does. Set my alarm 30 minutes early, get a coffee, and read for 30 minutes in bed. It's actually worked really well, until work got busy and I stopped doing it - I need that habit more.
I think that posting on Instagram / twitter and stuff helps to make it a habit, certainly, and I like seeing other people doing it so I have no shame about it - I should do this as well.
On a tangential note, in 2020 I started logging the RPGs I play on a big Google Sheet. And this is amazing! I have so many games I might have forgotten about otherwise, and it's definitely made me play more games (lockdown may have had an impact too) - I'm at 142 so far where I thought 100 in a year was an ambitious target.
