I have always loved reading, but I never make the time to read. I always want to, but somehow, I let everything else get in the way.
Eating, sleeping, working, watching TV, cleaning and even just procrastinating all get in my way.
I could easily waste an entire day inside of Chapters just looking a books. Often if I see a book that interests me, I will take a quick picture of the cover of the book so I remember it and put it on my list to read.
Other times, I will choose a book based entirely on what the cover looks like. I have come across amazing books this way, that I may have never otherwise looked at.
I just finished reading All My Friends are Super Heros by Andrew Kaufman. My final book of 2014. I chose it because I LOVED the cover art, and the story seemed interesting too. It turned out to be one of the best books I read all year.
I think I have collected 20 or more books to read, some fiction and some business related. I have best intentions to read them all (and to finish reading the ones I have started and not yet finished).
I have tried to find a time of day to make reading – even for just twenty minutes part of my routine. I haven’t found the best time yet, but I am working on it. Some daily down time sounds wonderful.
I think, based on a recommendation, I will be reading Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell next. We will see how that goes.
In the meantime, I am hoping to get a couple more Andrew Kaufman books as well.
