In an attempt to be transparent and hold myself accountable not just to myself but to all my readers, I read a book yesterday. 100 Years 100 Stories by George Burns to be exact.
Okay, one book is not exactly "reading more" but its a start. If I could read a book a day I could not only surpass but decimate the goal I set for myself of 1 a month. Yea it wasn't an earth shattering, learn something new each page, motivate me to the core book that I *should* be reading. But it did make me laugh. Oh how I laughed. So I took care of 2 resolutions at once. Now I don't recommend reading this book to your kids as a bedtime story but it is funny. If you are looking for an easy and quick read, maybe something for the bathroom shelf for your 2 minute trips there, this would be a great one to start with. Perhaps not great for the work site, I can just imagine would people would think to hear you in the stall next to them laughing hysterically. It might make them a tad self conscious.
I bought the book yesterday and finished it within hours. I figured Saturdays would be a good day to read. And I was right. The Dh said I should have bought 3 or 4 books cause I guess he knows me. Next month however is the VNSA book sale and I hope to find enough books there to get me through the year.
