This past year I've read forty books! In 2010 I only read about twenty, so you see how intentional I have become in my reading. There were several factors that helped me along the way:
1. We didn't have cable, so there were less distractions.
2. Jason deployed to FL and so there were even less distractions. (Comparing the first part of the year to the last part--I read twenty-five books in the first six months of the year. I have only read fifteen since July--considerable slowdown.)
3. I renewed my desire to read all of the Newberry Medal books--some of which were waiting for me on my bookshelves, while others I have found at the library.
4. I only read what I want to read and I do not read what I think I "should" read. I'm much more likely to pick up the book and read it regularly if I'm enjoying it.
|The books leaning to the right have been read. There were five more, but I sent them back to their owner. :)|
Those are my literary ramblings for today.
