Once upon a time I read books. Quite a lot of books. When I was a receptionist at Eby Construction I had stacks of books on my desk, present at all times, ready for whenever I had a minute. During this time of my life I read two books a week, many times in addition to the books I was already reading for class while trying to complete my degree in English Literature. I think this knowledge of literature is what helped me secure Hubby: he is very smart and still reads almost every night before going to sleep.
So, friends, when was the last time I read a book? Six months ago, and it was some silly Oprah recommendation. When was the last time before that? When I was pregnant with Litty Missy, and I Didn't Even Finish The Book. Now I can barely even concentrate long enough to read a magazine article.
I found this website - http://www.time.com/time/2005/100books/the_complete_list.html - and my plan is to deliberately and steadily plow through the list. I really want to know more about literature and less about people.com.
