I've mentioned here before that my reading time went right downhill this fall, and for a minute or four I regretted having been so public about my reading list, as if other people had time to notice or cared to judge whether I had read as many books in 2009 as in 2008 (which I did not, by a long shot).
But I suppose it's not a contest with anyone but myself. I can only pledge to continue reading in 2010. My hopes include reading more fiction, because it enriches me personally, which naturally inspires me in ministry, too. I have some non-fiction on my Kindle, but I think I'll give it a rest for now.
I finished a book on the airplane yesterday, so that will be my first book for 2010:
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley, a mystery with the marvelous heroine Flavia De Luce, age 11. I read it on Kindle. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It gave me hope that Twitter has not ruined me for reading more than 140 characters at a time.
And that has nothing to do with Robert Downey, Jr.
