12 Books in 2012

11 Jan

In continuing with our 101 goals in 1001 days I made a list of which books I’d like to read.  Ideally I would read one book every three weeks (because that’s when they’re due back to the library), nevertheless I know one book a month is already ambitious enough.

I feel it is so important to read books.  I had read many (text)books to receive my college degree, however I had read very few books to prepare me in my work as Wife and Mother.  Though no degree is necessary in raising a family, I feel it is extremely necessary to be educated.  I read books as if I were receiving  continuing ed credits.  Plus, I like to read.  Always have.
