365 Days To a Better You…and Me

05/22/2011 by C.

I have loved to read since I was a little girl. Back then the Nancy Drew and Judy Blume books rocked my world.

Looking back over the years, I realized I have done more reading for fun instead of reading to learn something or better myself. In the past few years, I have started reading a few books that could possibly improve me as a person and smarten me up a bit. I think this is a good thing and something I would like to do more of.

So I have decided to try something out. For the next 365 days, I am going to read at least 10 pages from a book per day that will inspire me, teach me, motivate me or just improve me in some way. There will be no excuses, no “I got home too late tonight” or “I had such a hard day at work and I just cannot keep my eyes open any longer.” Nope, this is going to happen every single day. If I happen to read more than 10 pages…great. But I will read at least the 10 pages.

I would love for you all to join me in my adventure. What’s the worst that could happen? I suppose reading might interfere with an episode of “Jersey Shore” but come on people…that stuff is just rotting your brains. I am a big fan of G.T.L. though. Pure genius.

I am curious to see what kind of person I will be 365 days from now. Will I have a new job? Will I raise my I.Q.  10 points? Will I make more money? Will I inspire others? I can’t wait to find out.

Today I will start this adventure with “Do You” by Russell Simmons. Yes, the record label mogul Russell Simmons. I have heard good things about this book so thought I would check it out.

Let me know what you think…will you join me or do I need to show up at your house and twist your arm? Don’t put it past me people!

    And yes, I know it shows on my blog I am reading Tina Fey. I am. I am reading books for fun in addition to the 10 pages of something good for my brain. That is how I roll.

    I'm intriqued. Suggested titles? I usually read fiction, my brain could use a challenge. Thanks Michelle

    No way in Hell!! I've lived long enough that I've earned the right to read fiction just for fun. I've learned all I need to know.
