Book Club

Today, I am thankful for book club. Reading is not and never has been one of my hobbies. Instead, it's more of a chore. However, after attending book club tonight (mainly just to get out of the house and be with other people since I hadn't completed the book), I have been inspired to start reading again. There is so much to learn in reading. I know that by reading again, not only will my reading comprehension increase, but I will feel more well rounded in society. Sometimes, I feel like I'm living in my own little world because I don't always relate to others since I haven't read or kept up-to-date on things.

Also, one of my deployment goals is to read 12 books before Jared comes home. To date, I've read 1/2 of a book. So I'm not off to a good start. However, I LOVE Christmas books and plan to dig them out this weekend and start re-reading them! Hopefully, that will be just the nudge I need to keep going.



  1. Good for you. I need to read more.

  2. I think you need to find an author that you just love. I have a couple. Anita Stansfield is who I am reading now. I love her. I have read 25 book since June. I'm telling you she is awesome.I also love Nicolas Sparks. I really liked the Hunger games did you ever read that? or what about twilight? Any of those sound good?
    I think when you find an author you like get more books from that author. So the christmas books you like see if the author has written others and go from there. I think you will find you enjoy reading. Just have to find your author.
