While attending seminary over the past 3 ½ years, I have acquired books, lots of them actually. Some may think that seminary increases one’s learning and understanding, and it does. For me, however, seminary also revealed how much I didn’t know and how much more I need to learn. So I started buying books to fill my learning gap. Sometimes people gifted me with books or publishers mailed books for me to review, and I could only get to a few at a time because my seminary reading load was so heavy. It short, I had a problem.
Once I graduated, I decided to give my brain a rest. I read a little during the summer months but not nearly as much as I would have liked. When my daughter returned to school, I started attacking the books on my shelf. There were so many interesting choices that I found myself picking up a new book to read every few days and I haven’t finished any of them. Therefore, I am giving myself an incomplete and vowing not to crack open another new book until I finish the ones I have already started.
