Three years ago I read 100 books during the school year. I was a reading teacher. I had piles of classroom books at all reading levels. I wanted to record the feat on Goodreads, but I hadn’t figured out how to record things properly on the Goodreads website. I have no record of those books to look back on.
So this year, 2016, I determined that I would read at least thirty books and record that reading on Goodreads. Unfortunately I reached the beginning of September 17 books behind schedule.
So, I decided to cheat. I gathered up a bunch of popcorn books… easy reads, books I set aside after reading half or more of the books, and books about drawing.
I also have a few books by comedians that are easy to buzz through because of the unique way that people like George Carlin and Lewis Black think… unfortunately rather close to the demented way I think.
I also read cartoon books and comic books quickly.
So, I have been cheating right along, finishing at least a book a day. I am now at only 3 books behind schedule. It probably is not a good thing for a former reading teacher to cheat at reading. But I am filling up my reading shelf. I enjoy the books. And the way Donald Trump manages his businesses and does charity work, I don’t feel the least bit guilty.
