Today I made a stack of 23 books that I have purchased over the last few years and not yet read. (It's an illness that I think I may have passed on to my daughter.) I have chosen FIVE of them to read in January. And then will choose another five to read in February ...and so on. That's really not asking too much. Besides turning off the TV once in a while and cutting down computer time by a couple of hours a day (yikes), one trick to achieving this goal is to ALWAYS have one of the books with me. This is truly how I did most of my reading in college! That way when ever I find myself waiting at the post office or doctor's office or just stop for a cup of coffee for 15 minutes, I will be working toward the goal of finishing one of the five books and, in turn, making myself a better person!
These are the books I will be reading in January:
- Playing for Pizza- John Grisham (OK-yes, I have been reading this for a month and it's only 250 pages long! I will finish this one by the weekend for sure.)
- The Show I'll Never Forget-50 Writers relive their most memorable concert going experience-This will be the one to keep in the car with me...it's 50 short stories.
- Mosaic- Amy Grant
- Lyrics by Sting
- Water for Elephants-Sara Gruen
OK...Off to read!
