It is a quiet Sunday morning as I sit down to write this. I just finished carving up a roast that I had been cooking in the crock pot overnight, and cleaning things up as Hal (person) prepares to go to work for the day. I wanted to take some time to write about something that happened to me over the last few days that has brought me great pleasure and also redirected my energies.
While I was straightening things up a few days ago, I ran across my Kindle Paperwhite. I had no idea when the last time I used it was, and the battery was completely drained. I recharged the battery and began to read once again. When last I had used the Kindle, I had been reading one of the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett. I read the paperbacks many years ago and had forgotten how much I enjoyed them.
I finished the book and then decided to look for some books that the company is always recommending that we read. Normally, I turn away from any type of structured reading plans, but I decided that since I am currently working on the 5 Choices course from Franklin Covey that I could check the Amazon Kindle store to see what else I might try. I found a few that looked interesting and, most importantly, we're NOT on the company's list that I decided to try for myself.
I will undoubtedly write about some of the things I am reading, but the main focus is the sheer joy of rediscovering my love of reading once again. My Kindle will never again become lost due to a lack of interest on my part. It will have a prominent place on my desk so I will be reminded to pick it up and actually use it from now on. As I am attempting to better organize my life, I need all the help and inspiration I can get.
