Back to Books
For me 2011 was, let’s say “difficult”. I had a lot on my plate: work, parenting, separation, divorce, an impending layoff, a new job, 2 moves, and learning how to date again. Keeping up with my still-growing reading list was not much of a priority. Now that I’m settled in a new place, new job, and a new social life, I’ve finally found my way back to the bookshelf.
I’ve rolled through the second and third books in the Sword of Truth Series – the origin of what might be the worst TV show ever – and Dinesh D’Sousa’s interesting and enlightening The End of Racism. Each of those hovered around 600 pages. After finishing those, I think my ambition got the best of me when I picked up Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything; I may have to shelve it for something a little lighter, like The Restaurant at the End of the Universe…I’m not sure yet.
What I am sure about is that this will be another year of reading for me. I’m sure I’ll be interrupted by the occasional professional read (.NET for Dummies, anyone?), but I’m back to books.
