When I moved into my dorm at MTSU a little over two years ago, I packed a box of about 50 books, thinking that I’d have all the time in the world to read them. I had been a voracious reader for the majority of my academic career up to that while, while also maintaining friendships, good grades, and club memberships. To my dismay, at the end of my first semester I still hadn’t touched a single one of the books I brought with me, and hardly read anything outside my required class reading. Now, having recently completed my degree, I find I have much more time on my hands to indulge in my favorite pastime. So, in order to get myself back into my reading flow and increase the variety of books I read, I’ll be taking on two new reading challenges this year: The Cannonball Read and Book Riot’s Read Harder challenge.
