My wife and I are very different in some ways, none more than our love for reading! Now by the title and images contained in this post you would assume that i am the reader...but - Nope. She is the avid reader.
But she has had an affect on me in more ways than one and reading would be one of them. Although our style of material to read is quite different as I tend to ready more non fiction and she reads more fiction!
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” - Charlie 'Tremendous' Jones
This quote made an impression on me, so i decided to read a few books a year. Well in one and a half years i have ready well over 26 books!
Below are a few images to show the titles/authors. My favorites of this group are the 2 by Bear Grylls and the one by Adam Shoalts.
Some of the books i read on a near daily basis are:
• The Bible
• The Power of a Praying Husband
• The Power of a Praying Parent
• Streams in the Desert
Since i am still new at this complete book reading thing i often will be in the process of reading 2-3 books in the same time period. Often it will be a mix of fiction/nonfiction.
None-the-less, don't underestimate the influence the experiences of others can have on your life! Stories told through the words on pages can have a lasting impact on all of us and help us to learn and see life from their perspectives. In the council of many there is wisdom!
So hey - go to your nearest library or book store, or maybe to someones home, look at their bookshelf and say - 'Hey, can i read this!' and go for it, it just might change your life!
i love computers (design stuff), the outdoors and sports... a combination that leads to lots of fun indoors and outdoors!
