I’m going to try to write one of these every week. First, it gets me writing. It gets me past any writers block with an easy post that doesn’t take a ton of time from school. Second, it holds me accountable for reading a book a week. Granted, some books really do take a long time to read even when I am keeping up on my reading. But unless the book I’m reporting on is 500+ pages, give me the stink eye if I report the same book two weeks in a row. Other weeks I might report on 3 books because each book alone was a 3 hour read.
I’m a little bit each day, making my way through The Holy Bible. I have an app on my phone that breaks it down for me so that as long as I stick to the program I’ll have it all read through by the end of the year. We’ll see. I imagine I’ll have some catch-up days. But, I’m totally counting it as one of my books read this year towards my goal of 52.
I’m still slowly pouring over a collection of short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I need to get this book done by the 10th, is my goal. I don’t even get to add it to my 2014 count because most of it got read in 2013. I was hoping to have it done by the end of 2013. But no such luck. I got distracted. That and I kept putting it aside to read other, amazing, books.
My real book for the week is A Separate Peace by John Knowles. I’m not nearly far enough in to grant you an opinion. I’ll offer that on next week’s reading update.
You are welcome to find me and friend me on Goodreads if you would like to see my read, to-read, and currently reading lists. It’s a great site for finding great books. And I love going to the library and pulling up my to-read list. I have also made both a list of books I own and a list of books I want to be sure to buy, which is very handy when I’m browsing Half Priced Books clearance shelves.
I have not been paid to promote anything with this post. The only thing I aim to promote is my love of reading and I have not been paid anything. Unless you want to pay me. Then you’re welcome to. Didn’t think so. *wink*
