2021 is finally here, which means it’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s reading resolutions! Do you want to read more books? Set reading goals or allocating more reading time instead of screen time? Well, if you’re looking for inspiration, here are some excellent New Year’s reading resolutions for book lovers in 2021.
Reading more books is one of the most popular reading resolutions for the new year, and with good reason! It works as a good goal no matter how many books you currently read.
For instance, if you only read one or two books a year right now, step up your game and create a resolution to read one a month. If you’re an avid reader, you might want to go for 52 books a year - one book per week!
Set Reading Goals!
A great New Year’s resolution for readers is to set some daily, weekly, or monthly reading goals for yourself. Whether it's an amount of books completed per month or a specific number of pages a day, setting goals allows you to focus on developing a good reading habit and reading at least a little bit every day.
Allocate More Time to Reading!
Spending more time reading is a similar goal resolution to reading a specific number of pages each day, but instead of measuring in pages you measure in time. Research shows that children who read 20 minutes a day do better in school so use this resolution to set aside time that you might usually spend on screen time activities like gaming and social media.
Track Your Reading Sessions!
And last, one of the best New Year’s resolutions you can do is to track your reading. We here at Read for My School are huge fans of tracking daily reading habits reading and advise all school participating in a RFMS fundraiser to do this daily to reach the goals set for them.
Keeping a written or digital record of your reading habits is easy, rewarding and enjoyable thing to do, because it’s so much fun to see the list of books you’ve read grow over the years!
