The First Whine of the New Year
Have I mentioned how the holidays, work, and home maintenance are an incredible ordeal for me? Well, it can't be stated too often.
I can say, however, that I kept a resolution I made last year. I was concerned that I wasn't doing enough reading, so I started keeping track of all the books I read in my all-purpose writers' journal. The total was 62. Okay, that's better than I thought I was doing before I started keeping track. It's still kind of pathetic, though, when you consider of I heard of people who read a couple of hundred books a year. On top of that, a number of the 62 books I finished were picture books or early readers. So, let's just say I'm not bragging.
