Since I feel like I’m all about challenges lately, which is really just a reflection of me contemplating my short and long term goals and what I want to do in my career and life (which suddenly sounds like to me a much more interesting topic than what this post is about…oh well) I thought I’d list another challenge. This is really just a semi resolution that I made.
I just want to read more. I’m not reading nearly as much as use to. I miss it. Books are awesome. And as the NBA commercials say, reading is FUNdamental. So the goal is to read at least one book a month. Thats just 12 books a year. Its like nothing. So yeah. Last month I didn’t read much at all, but overall for the year I’m doing ok I think. Although most of the books are old books that I read when I was young and am just felt like reading again now.
So far this year I’ve read:
A Handmaids Tale (really good!)
The Catcher in the Rye (didn’t care for this)
For One More Day (I liked Tuesdays with Morrie much better)
The Penelopaid (A Handmaids Tale was much better)
The Magicians Newphew (I liked this more than I thought I would)
And currently I’m reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (so far I like it)
I started The Virgins Knot (and stopped very bleh, I doubt I’ll touch it again) as well as The Three Musketeers (I’ll finish it eventually, its not continously holding my interest and feels like a chore to read at times).
And of course, we’re all waiting for July to come so we can finally get our hands on…..Harry Potter! 🙂
Ok, thats enough for now, I’m off to read!
