You Can’t Even Read

WHY READ?

I try to read as often and as much as I can! I really enjoy reading fiction and non-fiction. It is a time to reach out and gain knowledge, glean from others experiences, or simply to do away with the stress and busyness of a days work.

Have you ever seemed like you have been in a reading rut? I get in those sometimes. I feel like I am drowning in a sea of knowledge and information. Quite frankly, I just want to never pick up another book. What has helped me retaliate from this information over-load is to read a couple of fiction books. It seems to let my mind chill out and it can retire to a place where it is not having to process an abundance of information. A pastor I honor and truly respect, Jerry Lawson, once said, “Who you are 10 years from now will be decided by who you hang around, and the books you read.” I want to encourage you, if you do not, to try to pick up the healthy habit of reading!

Here are some books that I have read lately: (All you holy people out there don’t judge me and point a finger if you don’t like some of these books. I have found that to accurately critique someones work, you at least need to know what it says rather than going by what someone else tells you!)
