It’s the second week of June and I’ve decided to set myself a reading goal with a difference. By the end of the year I want to have read all the books by Harlan Coben; that’s about 30 books, not including his anthologies.
There are a number of reasons why I want to focus on Coben’s books for the last six months of this year:
- I like his particular style of writing
- he has quickly become my favourite author in the thriller genre
- I want to learn the craft of keeping readers gripped right up until the last page
Have you set a reading goal before? Do you always complete it? Or do you start off sprinting ahead only to fall at the last hurdle?
I read, on average, around 35-40 books a year, but I have never focused on one particular author, or a specific genre before; is that going to prove to be my Achilles heel?
I guess only time will tell…….
