My husband gave me a Kindle for my 31st birthday and I have absolutely loved having it. I had forgotten how much I truly enjoy reading and this little device rekindled (pun only partially intended) my love for that hobby. I suppose that had I actually made any New Year's resolutions for 2012 it would have been to read more, specifically classics and literature. Now as I begin 2013 I'm happy to report that that is a resolution I actually kept, or would have, again, had I actually made it.
So just for kicks I shall list all the books I read last year...mostly because I'm curious. (Also, some of the books I read only because they were free, don't judge me.)
Book of Mormon
Stuck in the Middle
The Scarlet Letter
Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Awaken His Eyes: The Awakened Book One
Paths of Destruction: The Awakened Book Two
Hands to Make War: The Awakened Book Three
A Confederacy of Dunces
The Secret Garden
If I've done my math correctly that means I've read just over 7000 pages, which, now that i think about it, doesn't sound like a whole lot. But if you factor in all the laundry and dishes I did last year as well, not to mention potty training a certain stubborn toddler, I suppose it's quite a feat.
So farewell, 2012, I hereby dub thee "The Year Mightier Than the Sword."
