I read. A lot. And I love it. Reading is a way for me to disappear into another world and focus on something for an extended period of time. It allows me to disconnect from devices – unless it’s my Kindle but thankfully, there aren’t notifications popping up everywhere. Reading gives me something to talk about that isn’t TV or gossip.
Reading makes me think about new concepts. It forces me to open my mind to new thoughts, people, and places.
Interestingly, I’m not part of any book clubs. I started a book team at work but all we do is talk online about reading. I may start a book lunch where you just show up, lunch together, and bring a book to swap.
What are you reading now and why? What drew you to the choice?
From my New Years resolution post:
Goal 5: Read at least 75 books. Each year, I set a goal of 50 books. Last year (as in yesterday), my end of year total was 88 and the year before was 62. Clearly, I’m passing 50 so time to up the goal!
