My newest venture: 42 books in 52 weeks!
Because, “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything is 42” – at least according to Douglas Adams who wrote The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Also, it gives me 10 weeks to fiddle around and procrastinate. 🙂
But why do it at all?
First, I’m great at buying and downloading books and starting to read them, but not so good at finishing them – so this project is selfishly meant to motivate me.
Second, I am inspired by many of the books I read, and yet I don’t have a satisfactory outlet for the thoughts they encourage. So I’m creating that outlet, in the form of blog posts. Some will be reviews, some will be random thoughts inspired as I read that book, but every book will get a blog post. Promise.
I know I’m the big winner here, but I hope you get some value out of my new commitment too. One thing will be for sure, you’ll rarely read a bad review here, because only the books I finish will be listed. I never make it far in a book I don’t completely enjoy.
