Water For Elephants

This is the first book I have read this year.  It is a good read and well written.  I enjoyed it and loved the end of the story. 

One of my goals  year is to read novels, I did not set a limit so I have accomplished that goal.  I am already on my second book, but need to get in some work related reading too.  I have found out when I read for entertainment, it makes the reading of my texts for work go that much faster and easier. 

I read this interesting stat on my Facebook  roll this morning from someone at our local radio station… I was just reading that 1 in 4 adults didn’t read any books last year… I first heard this from John Piper, he said that in reading just 15 minutes a day, you could easily knock off a 200 page book a month… just think of where you could go in a year having read 12 books! – Scott

Looks like the book has been made into a movie, can’t wait to see it. 

So, is reading books one of your goals for this year?  How many books do you normally read in a year? Do you think movies are ever as good as the book?

  2. Thank you for your sweet comment! I am so glad you stopped over!!! I love to read and it is my favorite past time and I never think a movie is as good as the book…except for To Kill A Mockingbird. I think they did a wonderful job.
