Literature can be quite a solitary hobby. However, I’ve had a few people in my life who really shaped my interest in literature, by challenging my reading or by showing me new genres. And because I study literature and devote my life to it, they haven’t just helped shape this hobby, they have shaped my life too.
Every year I participate in Goodreads’ reading challenge: you set a goal for yourself to read a certain amount of books and the website keeps track of your process. It’s a nice way to motivate yourself.
