#35 – Read More

Reading has been an activity I’ve enjoyed since childhood.  Sadly; I had neglected it for a very long time.  So here I am committing to reading 10 books each year; keeping it simple, attainable, and above all enjoyable.  I prefer to take my time savoring a good book rather than cramming texts just to say that I’ve read x number of books in y period of time.  Thankfully, I had to read 4 books as part of my Studies in Narratives Summer course, so I only have 6 to go for this year.

I will  probably post a sort of review of 2 or 3 out of the 10 books read through the year.  Also, I will assign a number of buckets to each book depending on how much I liked them.  Disclaimer: I am NOT a literary expert; therefore, reviews posted here are entirely based on my personal opinion and taste as a reader.
