In honor of National Read A Book day, Buzzfeed posted an article about 46 books that can be read in one day.

I’m going to read the books on this list in 46 days… maybe. Some of them I own, some of them I’ve never heard of but I can’t wait to discover these new stories. The following books will be omitted from this reading session:

Things Fall Apart (Own it, Read it)

The Dig(Not available at the library, will purchase at a later date)

Great Gatsby (Own it, Read it)

The Outsiders (Read it when I was 12, Don’t want to revisit that)

I was excited when I saw the list posted on my Facebook timeline. I’ve been looking for new things to read now that I have some free time. I’m not really in the mood to read 400 page novels. I’m more in a novella kind of mood and this list seemed perfect for me. I’ve already put in a request for 26 of the books at my local library. I’m going to start this journey this week! It will be nice just to sit in a silent house with a book and my imagination. After reading the books I will blog about my thoughts at the end of the week.

I’ve always heard that it is important to read as much as you write and vice versa. I’ve kind of been out of the habit of reading on a daily basis. I’ll pick up a book, put it down… 200 pages can take me 3 months. Why? Because I’ve been wasting my time with television. As some of my favorite shows have come to an end I’ve found myself just working on personal projects and not picking up new shows to watch. My fall roster includes Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire. Once those two are complete I will replace those hours with reading time and more writing. I’ve been working on my Wattpad story and my first novel. I really hope that I can get it complete for the New Year but we shall see. I put it down last week and I haven’t picked that baby up again. Ahhh! I’ll get on it and I’ll provide updates.

Hope you enjoy the list!
