I love reading. I have been reading since I was five years old. I am now 50 and don’t have as much time to read as I would like. Other hobbies and the responsibilities that come from being a dad, being a dog owner, and being fully employed compete for my reading time.

This year I will try to read as much as I can. I plan on having a book with me every day of the year. I will begin by reading all the books I’ve acquired through the years that I have shamelessly piled on book cases and boxes and every flat surface in my house. There are hundreds of those so I better get on with it.

Along the way, I hope to increase my reading speed. I read around 500 words per minute now and I would like to at least double that rate. Some people contend that there is no such thing as speed reading but I believe that speed reading is a skill that can be acquired with dedication and practice.

I am terrible at doing book reviews but I will do my best.

Thank you for stopping by!
