Books, books and more books…

Laurie is currently reading – – >

Books are such a passion for me.  They teach me, inspire me, remind me, entertain me, and yes, sometimes even manage to annoy the hell out of me  🙂

But since I was a young girl, they have been an integral part of my life (Thanks, Mom).

I set some tough reading goals for myself this year…. they are:

1.    Read more classics – Now that the classics are free on Amazon for the Kindle,  I realize how many of the classics I have never read.  What a shame!  Now that I can get them as free downloads, I have no excuse.  So beginning in January I began my journey into the world of classic literature.   I also belong to  a wonderful Book Club called The Reading Cove.  These ladies have joined me in some of my selections.  So far this year I have completed: Anna Karenina, Northanger Abbey, Peyton Place, Where Angels Fear to Tread and Uncle Tom’s Cabin. 

2.   Read books themed in Korea, about Korea or by Korean/Asian authors.  As my boys were born in Korea, I feel it is important to stay connected to the culture of their birthland.  This amazing culture interests me so much and through reading I have already learned alot!

3.   Reduce my “physical” TBR (to be read) pile to zero to free up space for…you got it, more physical books!  Although I LOVE my Kindle, I still love the smell, touch and way a “real” book reads.  I want to finish the books which I have accumulated over the past months and even years.  They have somehow escaped me and have gotten overlooked by other, more interesting reads.

4.   Set a number goal for completed reads for the year….My goal is 150!

5.   Keep a Book Log and map out your book choices by the month.

How do you feel about the Books in your life ?
