The average American watches 1,456 hours of television a year, but only reads 3 books.
I was thinking about this statistic and reminisced over the books I’ve read this year and thought about how I am a better person because of it. I’m glad I’m not average.
The books I have read this year:
Simplicity by Mark Solomon
Radical Reformission by Mark Driscoll
Counterfeit Revival by Hank Hanegraaff
Confessions of a Reformission Rev. by Mark Driscoll
No Compromise by Melody Green
Let Me Be A Woman by Elizabeth Elliot
The Air I Breathe by Louie Giglio
The Barbarian Way by Erwin Mc Manus
Hard To Believe by John MacArthur
To Own A Dragon by Donald Miller
I’m not one of those people who can read a book slowly over a long period of time. I operate on spurts of reading and reading. I usually finsh books in a few days. It rarely takes me more than a week to finish a book. I like to commit to it and finish without a lot of distraction in there. This also means that I can not read more than one book at a time. I like to fully immerse myself in a particular book, and reading more than one at a time splits my focus.
