I have decided to set a goal for myself and THIS. Which is a list of 1001 books that some guys think everyone should read before they die. I am going to try it. I have read 34 books on the list so far and probably more that I have forgotten but will remember when I start going down the list. The reason I have decided to start this goal was because the library here in Spokane is one of the only things that helped me keep my sanity since moving here. I will be borrowing all of these books from my library unless for whatever reason a friend hands me one or I have it laying around the house, which is a total possibility. My biggest worries so far when reading through the list that there are several books that I have already tried to read and failed (Ulysses) and certain authors that I truly don't enjoy (Dickens, I know.) and certain books I just have no interest in reading so I am trying to think of creative ways to deal with those obstacles. I think I am just going to read several books at once (one I like and one I am not so looking forward to) and yes I read a couple of books at a time most of the time so not too hard. I m going to keep this updated and share some of my thoughts and hopefully joy at enjoying some books I wasn't expecting to (I hope for this in the case of many of the Russian authors, we will see).
