Book Shelf

What I'm reading, have read, & want to read

In an effort to pick up my reading game, I thought a list of books to keep me focused and on-track would be helpful. One of the realizations that occurred to me recently is that there are too many books, articles, essays, blog posts, and letters that I want to read and there is not enough time left in my life to read them all. Paring down the list and focusing on a consistent reading habit seems to be the best solution to not wasting my time with bad books.

In the past, I would finish a book, even if it was horrible. What a waste of precious time! Now, I give it a chapter. After that chapter, I’ll move onto another book unless reviews or recommendations state, “It’s not until the third chapter that it really picks up but the wait is SO worth it!
