Hi. I am up late again tonight. It is just about 2 a.m. I have been thinking about turning in...but I don't know what it is about me...I don't like going to bed! It is not that I can't fall asleep...if I went and got in bed I would be asleep in no time...I guess I often feel like there is so much I could be doing, learning, reading in these hours and I hate to waste 'em! I know some of you are thinking..."SLEEP...A WASTE???... that is blasphemy!"...which will be totally true for me in the morning!
I haven't had any genius blog ideas lately (because the rest of my posts have been down right award worthy;) so I really don't have anything to say...hhmmmmm.
Oh! I am happy because I actually set a goal for the year and completed it last week sometime. I set a goal to read 12 books this year...I wanted to just average one a month! I did it...hooray! I know many of you have doubled, tripled, what have you, that number so hooray for you too! However, I am a slow reader. It is not that I can't read fast...but I don't like the sound of my "head voice" speeding through the words. To me it is as annoying as listening to someone reading out loud in class and just getting through it as fast as possible, everything all slurred together...no punctuation and what not. So...the way I read in my head sounds a lot like a person might narrate a book on tape. Therefore, it takes me a couple days extra to finish a book when compared to many of my fellow readers. Does this make sense? How do you read in your head?
The list of books I have completed can be found if you scroll ALL THE WAY DOWN to the end of my blog...be careful...it really is a long way down there. None of the books have been life changing or truly incredible...but some were quite entertaining...while others flopped. And to me it doesn't matter how many words a book has...when I have read front cover to back I call it good...whether it had 20,000 words or 200 thousand...a book is a book. Anything you think I absolutely HAVE to read??? ...I would love to hear your suggestions!
