What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading?

I love reading books.  I have an entire shelf in my living room dedicated to books checked out from the library.  However, last year I realized that I spend a lot of time reading through pointless books (check out some of the books I read in 2017)  I pick a book, it looks good, and away I go.  Within 3 chapters, it’s clear that it’s not for me — yet, I keep on trudging through.  What if there is some life changing nugget of truth hidden within chapter seven?  What if I need this information 6 months from now and I just don’t know it yet?

Anyone else suffer the same fate? 

This year, I want to read less in quantity and more of quality.  I’ve picked out a few books to read based on recommendations, but I’d love to hear about your favorite books.

What are you reading right now?

What have you read in the past that has really stuck with you?

I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Personally, I like to dig through historical, theological, or legal documents. More research than light reading.

    I know what you mean about picking something up and sticking with it despite it’s flaws. I find that is usually disappointing. I almost feel like I owe it to the book to finish it once I pick it up. I think, “Someone worked hard on this. Surely they have something great to say.” But alas. Time is short and valuable, and it usually isn’t worthwhile to finish a read just because you started. If they don’t give you something in the first few chapters that leads you to believe it will be worth it, it probably won’t.
