Following a marathon of Netflix streaming television shows, I was left feeling a little empty. While I appreciate the medium of television and film for storytelling, there is something about reading and imagining a particular story or topic that does not feel the same with visual media. There was a time before meetings, writing deadlines, and teaching when reading felt like an escape, not another thing to do on a list. Reading a book a week is a way to challenge myself to bring the joy back to reading. Some might already do this regularly and I applaud you. For those that have fallen behind, feel like there is no time, or just gave up on reading for pleasure … join me.
For 2013, I am challenging myself and YOU to read a book a week.
Join in and share with others what you are reading.
Follow the book a week list and share you ideas.
