Reading for leisure
No, that’s not a spelling error or a typo you see. I’m really giving leisurely reading a shot. Normally, the only time I’d pick up a book is when I’m forced to for a class
and even then I only browse through it. Reading has always had a negative connotation in my mind, because it’s usually associated with double-digit numbers of pages that have to be read by tomorrow. Then after a while, the reading becomes a race to get the assignment done, rather than a pleasant activity.
At any rate, I’m going to give it a shot, and thought these would be two good books to start out with. I have some friends that can get through multiple books in a week. More power to them, but I’m not that ambitious (not when it comes to reading at least), nor do I feel like this is a competition, so I will take my time to get through these and maybe in a month’s time I’ll be back on the shelves seeking something more challenging per se.
P.S. For any fellow facebook addicts out there, this is a great alternative! Every hour mindlessly spent creeping on facebook is 10-15 pages of knowledge and cognitive stimulation. Now doesn’t that sound so much more appealing?
