Hmm. So yesterday I was reading my friend Melanie’s blog and she’s got this list on there of one hundred books (you’re supposed to see how many of them you’ve read). So I was going through the list and having a hard time remembering exactly what I’ve read. I know that if I read it, and then forgot it, it probably didn’t do all that much for me. But I had these huge reading lists in college and there were those times when I ended up just renting the movie for lack of time or motivation–and so I was trying to separate those that have been read from those that have been watched. (Terrible, I know, and I shouldn’t really admit to that, but there you have it.) So I was chastising myself and deciding instantly to read all the books on the list that definitely should be read (except for books like Kite Runner–seriously, I just can’t bring myself to choose to be depressed for hours.). Anyway, later on I was considering just how long it’s going to take me to read all those books that I’m not dying to read and I started to feel like maybe reading all those books is not in my immediate future. There are some books that I want to read because I’m interested (like The Shack) and then there are books I want to read because I just really want to read them. I’ve said before that I’m a fan of YA literature. So lately I’ve been reading the Blue Bloods series. It’s fabulous. Vampires and reincarnation and angels–who knows why I love it but I do. I’m also reading a nonfiction book at the moment called The Christian Imagination and it’s great so far. (I do try to intake more than just vampire stories 😉 ). I’m also one of those people who likes to reread her favorite books. And if I’m arguing with myself about reading something I feel I should read or reading something like, I don’t know, Harry Potter–Harry Potter would usually win.
Check out Mel’s blog and see just how well-read you are. 🙂 http://melanieandmatt.blogspot.com/
