I’ve set quite a few goals for myself this year. Some are modest, while others may be deemed “lofty.” One of my objectives this year is to read a lot more books. I’ve always been “a reader.” However, when law school and studying for bar exams became my priority, leisure reading was pushed to the side. Now that I’m done with school and studying (for the rest of my liiiiife–I think), it’s time to revisit this reader lifestyle of mine. A few of my friends attended a young professionals trivia night earlier in the week. The piece of feedback that stuck with me most was “I knew all of the movie answers, but I definitely need to read a bit more.”
While scrolling through Twitter the other day, I stumbled upon a tweet about “52 Books in 52 Weeks.” It’s pretty self-explanatory — you read one book a week for the year. Immediately, I was down for the challenge. I went to Amazon and Barnes & Noble to compile a list of potential “52 in 52″ books.
My goal here is not to say “I read 52 books in a year! Na-na-na-boo-boo!” I simply want to unwind with a good ole book and expand my breadth of knowledge and imagination while I’m at it.
