So after a couple of bumps in the road, I would say I've made it pretty well through this first week of my reading challenge. Yesterday I would say I actually made it through almost two hours of reading in fact. It helped that I had some more free time than usual, but I firmly believe that now that I'm back on track with a commitment to carving out some time each day for reading and I'm supplying myself with interesting material (keep an eye out for a glowing review of A Thousand Splendid Suns) is truly why I'm making some progress in this goal. But its not over, not by a long shot. I'm going to stay the course and keep to this commitment for the long term. Who thinks that I can make it for a month? I do! I hope I do because I had really forgotten the great feeling of reading something that both entertains and instructs and that truly wonderful feeling of using my brain. Technology can make us so numb, but books, books make us feel every emotion that exists under the sun. Well, now I'm being sentimental but its true. Keep a lookout for more updates on my reading challenge!
