“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
While growing up, I always overheard the saying…”If you want to hide something….put it in a book.” Now I’m not certain how accurate that saying is, but I have made the observation that the youth population today don’t read as much. Now statistics says it has everything to do with the evolution of technology, but I can’t seem to quite wrap my mind around that. I know video games, social media and the internet takes up hours of today’s youths time but my question is are we challenging them to read monthly?
Though I’ve had a love for books since a very early age, I still challenge myself today to read even more than before. So if you try to hide it in a book, I most certainly will find it. As an incentive to keep myself consistently on track I have signed up for the 2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge in which I select my own goal.
I have decided to embark on a most enjoyable challenge to read 100 books in 2014. Each month I will give you an update on where I am in the challenge and what books I was lucky enough to indulge in. I’ll also include a link to Amazon.com for each book in case you would like to pick a read up for yourself.
