  • Mood:

the activity of reading

This evening I made a video for my Youtube channel where I shared with folks my method of reading. I read mainly because I enjoy the activity of reading. I do not pick up a book with the intention of reading it to the end. I rarely read a book to the end. Now I do once in awhile read a novel to the end if I find myself really enjoying the novel. But when it comes to books like 'Being In Christ: A Biblical and Systematic Investigation in a Reformed Perspective' by Hans Burger, I doubt if I will read it to the end. I tend to read nonfiction books for a couple of weeks and then go out to something else. I often will read a nonfiction book for awhile put it aside and pick it back up sometime in the future. I just enjoy reading and not that concern with reading a book from cover to cover.

Below is a list of the books I have been reading today and this week thus far-
