I have a pile of books from the library I’m been slowly working on. And I refuse to return any unread so I keep renewing them. I mean, this has been my project all spring. It was a serious mountain. And just as it started to be gone, I went back and checked out another mountain. Seriously though, I love to read.
My goal was to get through the pile by the time I started school. On the 29th. Of this month. With a good dozen books left. Not happening unless I read a book a day. Which I have done, let me assure you. But that’s usually at the expense of sleep and kinda my family. And Pat hates when I do that. He was pissed off when I discovered Twilight and read all 4 in 4 days. I got a combined 12 hours of sleep during that. But I couldn’t put them down.
And I’m like that with a good book. I can’t put them down.
The problem is, not all of the books I grabbed have been good books. Some of them I struggle to want to pick up. Logically I’d move on to the next book.
Logically. Let’s examine that word.
1.according to or agreeing with the principles of logic: a logical inference.2.reasoning in accordance with the principles of logic, as a person or the mind: logical thinking.3.reasonable; to be expected: War was the logical consequence of such threats.4.of or pertaining to logic.
–noun1.the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference.2.a particular method of reasoning or argumentation: We were unable to follow his logic.3.the system or principles of reasoning applicable to any branch of knowledge or study.4.reason or sound judgment, as in utterances or actions: There wasn’t much logic in her move.5.convincing forcefulness; inexorable truth or persuasiveness: the irresistible logic of the facts.6.Computers.
Does any bit of that sound like me?
Btw, I’ve never started a book I haven’t finished. I’m not changing that now.
