The Journey: Day 2

 Day 2

Last post I was trying to decide if the mission of this website was still going to be promoting family reading.  I've confessed that I have not had any success in getting my family to read, so I kind of feel like it's not appropriate for me to have a website promoting family reading.

I've thought about it and figured out that my reality is that I'll always be trying to get my family to read more because I have a passion for reading.  Yet, do I necessarily have to try to get other people's families to read more?  Hm . . . that's a tough one.

If I were an expert, then I'd say: yes.  Help others and pass on your knowledge.  But at this point, I have no knowledge to pass on.  However, maybe there is a journey that can be about discovering ways to get my family - and maybe your family to start reading  and possibly to enjoy reading together!

Right now, I don't have any idea how to promote reading.  But, I will do some research and get back to you about it.  In the mean time, I think I'll go old school and just share with you the books I have been reading lately.  The old book report in front of the class sort of thing.

I love to know what other people are reading.  The website Goodreads is a wonderful website to visit when you want to get book suggestions.  There are literally hundreds of book summaries and recommendations on all sorts of books.  The reviews/summaries are organized by genre and are easy to browse through.

To tell you the truth, maybe I shouldn't give you the link to Goodreads because it kind of makes my website obsolete.  Goodreads can give you a thousand recommendations and whereas I can only give you maybe one or two reviews per week - goodness.  . .   maybe I ought to give up before even trying?

Yikes!  That's a whopper of a negative thought!  We are after all on a journey.  There are many places to visit on this journey . . .(take a deep breath and let it out slowly)

Until next time . . .
