I said on Facebook last night, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a slow reader. I read at about or a little faster than conversational pace. I think it’s due to the fact that we didn’t find out I needed glasses until the summer after my first grade year. At the time I was leaning to read and write I couldn’t see. Somehow I managed to baffle my teachers and parents with the fact that I couldn’t see the board yet I was still doing well in school.

I envy you speed readers out there. I tried a speed reading course in high school – that was a bust.

Anyway, more for my personal satisfaction than for your pleasure I keep a running log of the books I read each year. I am currently working on numbers 21 and 22 on the year. I hope to keep up this pace and lifestyle of reading. It makes life so much more interesting.
