I have always loved to read. Growing up, I was the kid in class that got in trouble for reading too much. Is there such a thing? My family made bi-weekly trips to the library and when I finished reading the books I picked out I would start in on what my dad had chosen. I think I read Surgeon Under the Knife and books by Dorothy Fuldheim when I was in Junior High.
I remember hiding my books between the mattresses. After I got tucked-in for the night, I would slip them out and read by flashlight under the covers.
I track my books on GoodReads and set a goal for the year of forty books. As we near the halfway point of the year, I am closing in on that goal. I have read mostly fiction with just a couple of biographies thrown in for good measure.
At the beginning of the year I created a list on GoodReads, 2018-to-read, of a dozen books that I own that I have been wanting to read and haven't. I think it is about time to get started on them.
