I read, like a lot. No seriously, I'm talking a LOT. It's what I do. And I do it fast. I devour books in a matter of hours rather than days. Once I start a good book I just can't stop until it's over. Heck, the same is true for a bad book, just because I know that if I don't get through it I'll be annoyed with myself for not finishing it.
The only exception to this is A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I HATE that book. It literally took me months to read, and truth be told I'm sure I skimmed through a few of the dull parts. Oh, and maybe Hemingway too ... I really don't like Hemingway.
But anyways, that's not what this blog post is about. Lately my reading has taken on a new path. Rather than reading for enjoyment, or for even education, I've been reading for spiritual enlightenment lately. My heart is thirsty.
Have you read this book yet?
For some reason I can't find my pace while reading Crazy Love. It challenges everything about me. I'm finding it hard to just keep reading, flipping page after page, just to see what comes next, because quite honestly what comes next is a scary thing. Although this book is not mighty in terms of length, it's the hardest thing that I've ever read. And I am bound and determined to devote the time necessary to this book. In fact making the necessary changes in my life as outlined here is my 2011 resolution. And it's hopefully the first one in the history of my life that I'll keep.
I can guarantee that this book will shake everything that's inside of you up. It will make you uncomfortable, but in the best definition of the word.
So friends, what are you reading?
