There is Actually A Method to the Madness
Yes, yes, yes. I actually have a methodology to my reading. I find that if you read the same genre all the time, you get burned out. When you tend to read the same authors in a category all of a sudden, the stories seem to read the same. So, to give myself a break from historical fiction and mystery/thrillers, I break it up with memoirs, biographies, self-help, business book, comics, beach reads and the year's most popular book in contemporary fiction. It doesn't matter what time of the year it is that I read the category, I just try to do it on an annual basis. If you strive to read just one book a month, you should be able to accomplish the same.
