2009 is over half way complete. Scary. I'm usually not one for making New Years Resolutions simply due to my poor track record in the past. This year I made one I have never made before and this morning I realized I'm still on track to complete it. Shocking.
What was this miraculous resolution that is actually attainable?
I decided to read a book a month. Simple.
So far this is what I have read this year:
*January: The Shack (Young)
*February: Irresistible Revolution (Claiborne)
*March: The Book of Negros (Hill)
*April: The Alchemist (Coelho)
*May: The Book of Negros(Hill) - no this isn't a typo... I just HAD to read it again.
*June: So you don't want to go to Church anymore? (Jacobsen/Coleman)
July: Three Cups of Tea (Mortenson)
I have a stack of books to pick from for the rest of the year but if you have a suggestion for an amazing book you've read please post it... I'm open for suggestions! I have put an asterisk beside the books I own so if you would like to borrow one... just give me a shout, I would recommend all of them.
(If you live outside of Canada the book by Lawrence Hill was released as "Someone knows my name" instead of "The Book of Negros".)
