Reading at least a few chapters of a book is a worthy goal for each day. One app I have recommends a half hour of reading. Seems doable to me!
Since I have at least a thousand books in my collection begging to be read, I’m attempting to be discerning as to where I spend my reading time. To wit, I went to a public library book sale over the weekend and confess I was tempted by Kitty Kelley’s old biography of Nancy Reagan.
I know, from reading a few, that the biographies Kelley wrote are gossipy and thorough. She will find and interview the boy who hated you in first grade. You do not, I repeat not, want to be one of her subjects.
I thought, Do I need to learn about every sin Nancy Reagan ever committed and what every enemy thought of her? She’s passed away; and her era is history, however nostalgic we may be for the Reagan Years. I instead purchased 10 Things Jesus Never Said and Why You Should Stop Believing Them by Will Davis, Jr.
This choice doesn’t make me a good person. Buying any book at this point confirms that I am a severe book addict adding to my collection faster than I can read it. But at least I chose a short and intriguing volume.
My name is Tamela, and I am a book addict. Therefore, I refuse to discuss my trip to another bookstore and the four books I bought there later that same afternoon.
