Among the many hobbies that come and go, reading has been the most long term. I find that I'll have months and months of reading to no end. I'd drop whatever I was doing if a book grasps me from the beginning. I can't even count how many times I've stayed up all night just to finish a book. The main problem I have with books however, if it doesn't grip me from beginning, I'll flick straight to the end, bypassing all the middle, and if that's not good enough I just won't read the book altogether. Commitment issues it is.
The goal I have set myself for the next two months (apart from, y'know, passing law school) is to read these four books to the full without skipping any sections, whether I like it or not. I'm already finishing off some books now, so this will begin straight after I finish those. At the end of August, I hope to have a mini - if not full - review of all these books for you.
- John le Carré - A Most Wanted Man
- Calvin Kyrtle - Gandhi, Soldier of Nonviolence
- John Kennedy Toole - A Confederacy of Dunces
- Lesley Adkins - Empires of the Plain
Stay tuned and wish me luck! xx
