I read a blog post about a month ago about the practise of reading one book each week thru the year. Yup, 52 annually.
I thought I read quite a few books in a year, but doubtful it came anywhere near that.
Already breaking into March it wasn’t a New Year’s Resolution but I made a personal commitment; a challenge to read at least 40 book pages daily
So far this is what I’ve covered, in about 4 weeks:
Foods That Fight Pain
The Origin of Satan (couldn’t get into it so I quit)
The Power and the Glory by Graham Green
One Good Dog by Susan Wilson
Prescription for Nutritional Healing (ok, huge book I browsed thru, took notes and returned to my healthy 92yo friend)
Hydrogen Peroxide Medical Miracle by William C Douglass
The Toop Ten Natural Cancer Cures No One is Talking About by Danica Collins
Soul Food by Jack Kornfield (that’s a slower read, more reflective, so I read it in small chunks)
Outsmart your Cancer by Tanyo Harter Pierce (my current read)
Because I read quite a bit aloud to the kids I’m counting those chapter books as books I read each week, too, though keeping them in a separate list to see how much I accomplish for my own pleasure (although I usually get plenty pleasure out of what I read the kids, too. Like Suzanne Collins trilogy, oh my that was gripping.)
William Henry Harrison (all 3 from the Young Patriots Series)
While traveling we try to limit the space committed to books since every inch inour van is considered prime real estate when it is also crammed with 9 family members.
We are transitioning somewhat to ebooks with 4 Kobo readers but I don’t see a future for us Johnsons (nor the world as a whole) without book jackets slipping off while we jostle for position and breathe in the sometimes musty smell of a beloved classic and Ol’Friend.
Tell me: Are you an avid book reader? What are you currently reading? How many books do you think you read in a month? In a year?
