Becoming a Reader of Books

stack of books

IN MY FANTASY LIFE, I’M AN AVID READER of books. In real life, not so much. I tend to read a lot of short pieces – a lot of articles. I’ve made several attempts over the years to turn myself into a book reader – usually with good intentions and high-minded declarations – but it never stuck. Finally, I made a New Year’s resolution to read a chapter a day and I kept track, writing it down in my calendar. The habit is beginning to take hold.

Update: September. Am on my 20th book!
