A year and a half ago I started – what I call – a dirty 30 list. At the time it was 30 months until I turned 30, so I listed 30 things to do before I turned 30. For a good long while I haven’t really mastered anything on that list. I was really hankering to mark something off, when I realized that after reading 7 Harry Potter books I might have actually reached a goal.
And I did. When I made this dirty 30 list, I didn’t have too much time on my hands to read books. I hadn’t picked up a book in awhile – months. So my goal was to make sure I read 1 book a month until I turned 30. That, of course, would be 30 books. Then life changed a bit and I was able to start reading more often. So here I am a year early having read 3-0 books.
Some were rereads, some were to pass the time at work during the slow season, some were just to take my mind off stress, and some were educational. This isn’t a list of books I’d necessarily recommend – although only 1 do I remember thinking this book is bad so I guess if you want some new books to read I can share the list. But basically it’s just a list of books that made me love to read again.
Reading is important to me again – I make time for it now. Iron Man and I always have some down time together before bed and we usually ended up wathcing television. Now it’s a toss up of whether we’ll watch tv or read. That’s a win . .
