Ok guys, I finally got some true success yesterday! I did read in between the periods and on the commercial breaks for the Sharks game, however, after the game I got in 40 more solid reading minutes so I'm estimating that my grand total was somewhere around 70 or so minutes for the day. I have to admit that it helped that reading The Great Gatsby is pretty easy and I managed to fly through the first 50 pages. In fact, if it hadn't been so late I probably could have read through at least most of the book. And I'm not scanning, I'm reading as carefully as I was trained to in all those college classes that seem forever ago. Oh and for you late comers that also want to re-read The Great Gatsby and don't have a copy laying around (and trust me its a pretty good bet all the library copies are currently taken, if you are in Orange County I checked) you'll be glad to hear that Barnes and Noble's version of the ebook is only $2.99 and Amazon's is only $4.99. While I tend to prefer real, solid books while I'm reading, you can't argue with the price difference.
So is anyone else keeping up with their own reading challenge? Update us all!
