So if you know me, you know that I am neurodivergent, (yes, bipolar disorder is under the umbrella of neurodivergence), and with that, for me, comes the struggle to focus on one thing for more than 3 minutes. It’s really difficult and frustrating, I don’t know how I got through undergrad and my Master’s degree program with this jingly bell brain of mine.

Actually, I know how I did, I’m a Magical Being, but that’s beyond the point of this post; see what I just did? Anywhoodles…

Since I just finished my Master’s degree and have more time to catch up on books that I’ve been wanting to read for fun, for the past 6 years, I took it upon myself to see how other people were able to read so many books within a week or a month or so, because I have a TON of books to catch up on and read (movies are next!)

YouTube never disappoints me, I found a few Booktubers who had placed themselves on a reading challenge where they made themselves read 100 pages per day for an entire month! I think I want to do this for the rest of the year so that reading 100 pages become my new norm. (Doesn’t it take 21 days to form a new habit?)

I might make a YouTube video about how it’s going (or not). Right now I’m reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (I love saying her name! It feels so natural, lol), and so far it’s okay. It’s not what I expected from this book but I will shut up until I have read all 580+ pages before I give a review. I have a few other books from the library by Toni Morrison and another YA novel. I won’t tell you what they are until I get to them.

I started my challenge today, November 6, 2022. So, are you gonna join me in my Read 100 Pages A Day Until 2023 challenge? Let me know in the comments!
