Okay, okay. I can’t lie. I just can’t. The “someone” was myself. LOL! Today’s post title was a silly (conniving) way to get you to read this post. I guess if you are still reading, it works.
But bear with me here.
When people find out in the course of a conversation, by reading my blog or scanning my LinkedIn profile or following me on Twitter or Facebook that I have a standing goal to read at least 52 books a year (sometimes more), they ask….how?
Well, here’s my secret: I make time to read. That’s right, I make time to read on purpose. I have discovered that if I don’t make time, then I won’t read. This is done consciously. In other words, on purpose.
My love – well, addiction actually – for reading started in 2007 when I read 54 books. That was followed by reading 63 books in 2008, 58 in 2009, 51 in 2010 and 57 in 2011. So far in 2012, I have read 19 books.
I guess there are worse things to be addicted to than to reading. One of my goals was to write a book myself. I did that already. In fact, I’ve started writing my second one!e to write my own book.
I hope you love to read as well. If not, make it a point to start. It’s exercise for your brain!
Thank you for reading this post today.
