It’s only January and already I’ve posted six book reviews. Now I’m not a professional reviewer, and I could probably do a lot more processing of each book as I review them but that’s just not how I role. I hope that these reviews are helpful to folks, I know they are helpful to me, and that’s really why I blog, to help me first.
But why o why am I getting so much reading done? two reasons
1) Writer’s Strike. right now the only thing on TV is “reality TV”, and I am growing more and more out of favor with all reality TV. So without new shows like the Office, 24, LOST (starting this week), and such, I just haven’t been watching a ton of TV, and when Kathy is watching her reality TV, I am more than happy to be with her and work on a book that I need to get through. So I’m bummed that I’m missing out on new episodes of the office, and 24 is being delayed, but I think I’ll manage.
2) Kathy is working 3 evenings a week. Kathy has a great Job, and it has acutally been really flexible for here and our family. But she’s gone three nights a week, so instead of playing Guitar Hero all night (just some of the night) I put on some actual music and read. I put Judah to bed, and then start working on a book.
That’s why I’m reading so much. I don’t know how many books I will finish before the year is over, but on this track if I finish 6 books a month (crazy) I will have read (doing the math in my head) Something like 100 books. (I’m not good at math, I was always more gooder at english). That many books probably won’t happen because like all good things this writer strike will probably come to an end, and then who knows what will happen.
I would love to hear what y’all are reading. Anything you think I should pick up? I’m currently reading through the books I’ve had for a while but haven’t finished. Next up is the Jesus Way by Eugene Peterson. But hit up a comment and let me know what your reading.
