I love it when other blogger's write about/start things I have been thinking about but haven't got around to writing/doing anything about yet.
Most recently, Cevd and ESB's pledge to read the printed word campaign.
Once upon a time I used to read a lot. And then I went to law school and my brain was just so full of information all it could take in was the flimsiest of novels. Since then my reading has dropped from a novel a week(ish) to only a few a year. Several times recently I have thought how much I pleasure I used to derive from reading novels, which now I seem to spend reading on-line. I still read magazines but even my newspaper reading is more often than not on-line, unless I am on a train.
And then, when we were in Stockholm, I was reminded of the simple pleasure of publications such as the New Yorker, or journals. And then I was given poetry for my birthday and I remembered just how much I love poetry.
So, great timing Cevd and ESB. Just as I was thinking about a post about how I should read more and so on, you guys come along with not only a post but a campaign. How about that?
I fully support your campaign to read the printed word. Thank you for actually putting it into motion.
