Year in Review 2014 – Reading Challenges

Not a great year regarding my reading challenges or reading in general. I had long reading slumps, but I did find a number of fanfiction stories I enjoyed in the Hobbit fandom that pulled me into reading books again. I managed to complete my goal of reading 100 books by the skin of my teeth, which is not an experience I’d like to repeat any time soon. I learned that shorter stories help to keep my motivation going when I can’t seem to muster enough energy for my usual longer reads. Some classics are shorter than one would imagine and short stories aren’t a bad genre at all and feature many fascinating characters. Additionally, it’s great to throw in a humorous/children’s book from time to time. Books can never turn dull. 😀
