Bailed, but Now I’m Back
I totally ditched 2010. It’s fitting that my last post was in September, and titled “Abandoned.” Prescient, even. Certainly not intentional.
I didn’t abandon the 52 books project completely. I reached 31 by the end of the year. Not too bad, considering I don’t think I’d read 30 books in the 10 previous years. I also picked up some new hobbies. Sketching and comic books in particular. I’m a new man for 2011, and I’ve already finished my first book, Stephen Gould’s Jumper, and started the second, Neil Postman’s Teaching as a Conserving Activity.
I may or may not write more than a blurb about the first, it’s been weeks since I finished it. But I’m very excited about this Postman work. It is, in his own words, his “vice versa” to Teaching as a Subversive Activity (which I definitely didn’t like).
I’m sure the list this year will include some graphic novels and comics, when I need to get them in. Probably not a lot, though.
Not much else to tell, really. Actually, there’s plenty; I’m just not telling. Shalom.
