I used to read all the time. I loved it. I didn’t have to pick up a book, but that’s pretty much what you found me doing most of the time.
I don’t do it much anymore, which is incredibly, unbelievably sad, given how much I used to. So, I’m going to pick it up again! I’m going to try and get through one book a week. Who knows, I may be able get through more. It’s an incredibly busy point in the semester, but that’s no excuse. If I have time to watch Jenna Marbles and My Drunk Kitchen videos or browse Reddit endlessly, I have time to pick up a book.
Here’s how it’s going to work. Fun books. By fun, I mean anything that I want to read for the sake of reading, not something assigned for a class or something I need to read in order to get background for my thesis/comprehensive exams. Some I won’t have read before. Some will be great loves that I’ve put aside for too long without rereading (I’m looking at you, Tolkien!). It doesn’t matter all that much what I’m reading, the whole point of this is to just read. A lot. At the end of every month, I’ll be posting a photo of my stack of finished books, and I’ll tell you a little bit about them.
Just as an fyi…I’ve already finished one–The Dark Phoenix Saga! Yes, I’m counting graphic novels.
