Life Simplicity #1: So You Want to Read More

Reading takes patience and money. But, most of all, reading takes time. With hectic schedules, children, and daily life strains, readers worry they’re not meeting their yearly challenges, or simply they do not read as much as they would like.

How can readers fix the problem?

Here’s one tip I use: Daily page counts.

Choose a daily page count that works best for your schedule. For example, I give myself at least sixty pages. If I meet my daily quota, I’m good. Sometimes I feel so good that I raise my page count for the day, reaching one hundred. Trust me. I often reach the count.

So don’t worry. Don’t throw fits. You can create your own daily count. Must you read sixty pages? No. If you get five pages in, you’re ahead from yesterday.

Try and moderate the counts until you’re comfortable adding or deleting what works and what doesn’t. Remember, reading’s a pleasure, not a race.

Happy Reading!

Crafty Scribbles


Hello Everyone, I'm Latanya aka Crafty Scribbles. I'm a reader. Well, obviously this is a book blog. Reading and enjoying the process is a must. Why not share my joy with others like me - or unlike me, pleasant conversation and all being key? What's there to know? Well, along with reading, I write stories. I'd like to publish them (I've published poetry, which is cool, too). But, until I do, I hope to share my views on the writings of others. In my personal life, I teach as well as work as a wife and mom to two boys (Yes, these count as work, too!). I currently live in a Los Angeles suburb, but I travel and my mind expands to to other places on the globe. Care to join me? I promise to be fair, honest, and respectful. I'm not here to cut fellow writers. But, I do believe in sharing critiques that help others to grow. So, if you're looking for drama, I'm sorry I can't help you with that request. I hope you enjoy your stay whoever you are.
