Twenty-Fifteen: I have been doing something that I had been putting off for far too long. I’ve gotten serious about reading, again. I’ve dusted off my paperbacks and charged up my Kindle. It has been a year to take the time to feed my poor television-adled brain with a selection of healthy, nourishing fiction. So, read on, little brain. Read on.

Book to the Future: Epilogue

One year. Twenty-five books. Twelve-thousand pages. And over three-million words. I set out to fill my 2015 with new novels, to re-connect with the simple act of reading literature, novels, stories good and bad, and to clear out some of the many unread tomes littering my bookshelves. I found some some amazing works that inspired me to think in new ways. I discovered other books that bored and confused me. It was a little thing, and a thing we often take for granted: Reading. Literacy. The freedom to pick up any story with any idea and consume it, talk about, write about it, love it or hate it. Ad yet, throughout the year I found myself sitting on the bus, in a park, a cafe, or beside the pool waiting for swimming lessons to finish, and nearly every other set of adult eyes… looking at their phones. Playing games or surfing social media. We have the freedom to do that, too, I guess, but after my year of finding myself lost in the multitude of pages and stories and narratives I kinda think, oh… what a waste.
