As I mentioned in yesterday's Feeling Blue post, I have made a new goal to read five books before the end of 2012. I made this goal in order to encourage me to read more. When I was younger, all I did was read. Ask any of my family members and they would tell you that I was normally curled up in a chair in the corner with a book in hand. But since moving out and going to college and now working full time while taking care of life, reading has kind of fallen to the side. I just always say I don't have time to read anymore. So after talking to a good friend of mine, she encouraged me to make a goal and so I did. And I've already finished a book! Granted, I had it started before I made this goal but I'm still counting it.
Book #1: Choosing to SEE by Mary Beth Chapman
I'm in the middle of another one and just about to start a 3rd. The reason why I'm reading two at a time is that one is on a more personal topic and I didn't want to bring it into work and arouse questions. So I leave it at home and bring a different one into work. Now that my classes are done for the summer, I can use my hour long lunch breaks to read and relax instead of doing homework. I'm looking forward to it.
I will keep you posted on my book reading and now that I've put my goal out there for all to see, hopefully it will help keep me accountable!
