A Pat On The Back


Mark Anderson comic via Ebook Friendly.

I want to take a moment to celebrate a massive achievement: today I finished reading my 15th book of the year. To some people, this will probably be a “So what?” moment. However, since I only managed to read a grand total of 15 books in all of last year, I am very proud of myself for getting my act in gear and doing some serious reading in 2017. Also, I’m ahead of my schedule, which is to read one book per week. We just finished Week 10, so I should be starting my 11th book, but instead I’ll be starting my 16th.

I’ve read some heavy stuff so far, and several of the works still weigh on me, particularly Resistance, by Agnes Humbert. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next, though I did just find a copy of Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, at the Little Free Library down the street. So maybe that; we’ll see. If you want to see what I’ve been reading, the Reading List is up in the tabs at the top of the page.

But now it’s time to pack up for tomorrow, then hit the hay. Tomorrow morning I’m going to be trying something new – heading to the gym for a run and some weights every morning before work. It’s going to take some serious effort on my part, since y’all know I’m definitely not a morning person. Wish me luck!

    Don’t know how you’ve managed 16 books so far this year. I found No Logo by Naomi Klein very stirring a bit ago but I don’t think I’ve actually held on to any of it. I have The Shock Doctrine to read by her now too. I watched the movie of Wild last week- it was decent. Good luck gymming!

      Oh man, I just Googled “The Shock Doctrine” and had a mini panic attack. I don’t think I’m in the right mind space to read that right now. Let me know how it goes, though – sounds like a very important read.
