One of my goals for the new year is to read more. January is practically gone and I haven’t quite made any progress in that department. Before 2007 ended I had started two books. I’m going to try to get on with Grisham’s BLEACHERS which should be an easy read. I just haven’t had the time.
I have always found great pleasure in reading in addition to whatever entertainment or knowledge I gather from whatever it is I read. I try to get my hands on a wide range of books, not necessarily the best sellers of the day — but I have learned from previous experience that there are a lot of gems in the bargain racks as well.
So except for the Grishams, Clancys, Buscaglias, Bachs, and those by my other favorite writers whose books I try to grab, I try to keep an eye out for other interesting reads. It may be something I had heard of or which had been recommended y a magazine — or perhaps it was mentioned in a bulletin from my favorite bookseller. I have tried very hard to resist the urge to pick up any new ooks until I went through at least six of the dozen or so books on my shelf which I have yet to open — but there is just so much material out there.
Reminder to self: put Grisham’s book in my tote. I’m already two books behind as I have yet to get my hands on THE INNOCENT MAN and this week he releases THE APPEAL. All the more I have to get going on my reading list..
