Competitive Book Reading

Competitive book reading

The above linked article tells about how reading challenges have changed the way people read. It claims that the challenges add a layer of guilt if you aren’t reading “fast enough” or reading “all of the books available.” I disagree with it. Yes, I get pushed along with my reading when I am working on a challenge, but if I don’t meet the challenge, I don’t feel guilty. I am only competing with myself. I read for enjoyment. I do keep track of my books, but mostly just to see where I am. I will mark my pages on goodreads, and I will mark and review my finished books. For my own knowledge, not to make anyone else feel bad or good.

It is an interesting article, though. It gave me something to think about.
