Finish Me

I have this problem.  I pick up a book, enjoy it for a short time, and then end up perusing the shelves at Village Books and buying more before the current read is finished.  Now I have this stack of half-finished novels that cover everything from African refugees to parents with cancer.  

This doesn’t mean I’m incapable of finishing anything.  I probably did get through 15 books or so in the past year.   However, new goal:  stop visiting Village Books, dust of the covers, and make my way through this stack by the end of 2010. 

With only 50 pages left, I’ll start with “Around Africa on My Bicycle”.  Riaan’s journey became a bit arduous through Kenya and my attention waned.  If I can just get through Mozambique, I can ride the rest of the way to Cape Town with him.   I know I can…

    I can so relate. I acquire books much faster than I get through them. Enjoy…Looks like you have some good reading ahead of you. 🙂
