My New Year's resolution of no television may be the best decision I have ever made.
Instead of mindlessly watching a show and trying to multitask and doing five other things at the same time, I've turned to reading.
If I watched a forty minute show, I mostly ended up feeling like I wasted forty minutes. Reading for twenty minutes gives me the impression that I've taken a much longer break (more like two hours) and I can pick right back up on my work and continue to be productive!
You can check out the other books I read during the first quarter of 2011 here.
I collected a ton of recommendations via Twitter, Tumblr, and College Prep and started out to read a bunch of the books...
Since then, I have read:
Water for Elephants
(which I'm, like, the only person who didn't enjoy it...)
The Other Daughter
The English American
Thirteen Reasons Why
(I'm about 75% through with this)
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
(the current College Prepster Book Club book!)
Please keep sending me book recommendations!
Have you read any of the books I've read so far? What'd you think?
