This is really embarrassing to share. I haven’t finished reading a book completely in years. I have bought books at the book store – ones that people have recommended to me – The Tipping Point, Blink, The Time Traveler’s Wife. I’ve gotten halfway in all of them and then I stop. No reason, no explanation, maybe I just got bored. I don’t even finished my required reading for my classes. I love reading and I read the news and blogs every day so I stay up to date. I’ve realized over the years that I just didn’t want to put in the time and effort into a book. Something up that sentence doesn’t sound right because after finishing a book, I always felt rewarded.
Anyways, I have one summer goal for myself (for now) and that is to finish the book given to me by my boss.
I’m already 30 pages in and beginning to understand why he might have chosen this book for me. It is a book filled with a lot of mini stories and statistics, which helps to capture my attention long enough. It also includes some pictures. Nice.
I’ll let you all know how it goes when I finish. The countdown starts now!
