Here's the challenge: commit to reading 50 books and watching 50 movies in the next year! (Find out more...)
The thing is, I'm a pretty fast reader. Like I'll crank out a novel in a few hours. Crack open the spine in New York, hit "The End" by the time the plane lands in San Francisco. Yet somehow all my reading energy has gone to perusing long form articles online, or snippets of news from my iPhone.
I could say that traveling back and forth across the country limited my book carrying options -- I had one book, Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance, lugged around with me from coast to coast -- but that's not the reason I read so few books. The real reason is because I stopped making time for reading. The classic "It's not you, it's me." But it really is me! I needed to make a change because reading is one of the best things on Earth. Next to Tim Tebow and Snapple.
With the Fifty Fifty Challenge, I'm going for gold and getting back to my book devouring ways. Armed with my trusty new eReader, I'm ready to get my groove back. Cue dance party.
