The problem with reading I’m having right now is that I don’t think I’m doing it for the right reasons.
Don’t get me wrong–I have thoroughly enjoyed what I’ve read so far. But I’m not reading because I feel driven to read, like I used to when I was a child. I’m reading because I set a goal. And I’m reading because of the satisfaction I feel when I change a book on my GoodReads “to-be-read” shelf to “read.” And I’m reading because I want to help my students next year. Does it matter, so long as I’m reading?
I don’t know.
At any rate, here’s what I’m reading this week…
The Accidental Genius of Weasel High: this, I am reading on my iPad, via the Overdrive checkout system from my library. Yay technology!
Uncommon Criminals: the sequel to Heist Society. Loved the characters in the first novel, and I’m a sucker for sequels.
The Book of Awesome: I heard the author give a TED talk about how he came up with the idea for the book, and I need a shot in the arm of optimism. Hope this does the trick.
