New Project

Alright, I realized today that I really need to get my ass off the Internet and actually read some books. It just kind of hit me when I looked at all the poor unread tomes sitting on my shelves and heard the cries from the ones stuffed under my bed. So I made these rules:

1. Read one book a week for a whole year.
2. They can be any subject, fiction or non-fiction.
3. Comic books and graphic novels do not count, thats too easy.
4. Kids books are alright but they have to be actual novels, again, that would be too easy.

If anyone wants to do this with me and see if they can keep up, that would be really cool too. Everyone needs to read more books!

Since I've been obsessed with Irish culture lately, the first few books are going to be all Ireland related. I was at the library today and found a small shelf corner where a small selection of books on Irish History were sitting lonely and I borrowed the first one I grabbed:

A History of Modern Ireland With a Sketch of Earlier Times by Giovanni Costigan. It's old and falling apart but it looks like a good place to start.

Check back next Monday to see if I was able to make it one week!

So yeah...I read and read and read, but sadly class time makes it so I can't spend time reading. You know, the whole teacher thing. But I wish you the best of luck. Read some dickens and I highly suggest Magyk by Sage.

I was wondering if you were still following my blog! So cool!

Yeah, I'll get to Dickens when I get through my stash of old sci-fi novels. Whats a good one to start with?
