A Swing and a Miss
As you see from my prior posts I have been trying to read more and watch less movies but I have not quite done as well as I had hoped. I gave up on "Bleak House" after nearly falling asleep on the toilet (not a pleasant experience). I started "Atonement" and started to get into it, but then cleaned out my car before my trip to Mesquite and never put it back into my car. Instead I have averaged a movie a day and nearly finished Stephen King's IT for the umpteenth time. I am not going to give up though! I plan on reserving a few books through the library so I don't have to search around so much and I am going to lower my goal a bit to acount for more movie watching. I am also going to sort my list and read the books I'm most interested in first. I have already added "A Clockwork Orange" and "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" to my library reserve list. I have been excited to read these books so I think it will motivate me to continue working toward my goal.
