Reading List and Life’s Plans

This year in an attempt to increase the number of books I read per year, I set a goal of reading 4 books a month. This goal seemed entirely reasonable and would put me above previous years at a total of 48 books. I’m ending that goal now.

Let me say, I am 3 books behind at the end of July, but that’s not why I’m stopping. I fully believe I could catch up those three books, though I do tend to read long books. I’m stopping the goal due to the fact I have just signed up for 9 credit hours of classes next semester.

My knowledge is rusty, and I’m really going to need to read up on my subjects. As a matter of fact, I’m starting rather soon. I pulled out my BLS for Healthcare Professionals books yesterday so I could start reviewing. BLS is a prerequisite for my Basic EMS course starting in September. I have a feeling I’ll also need to review my first aid hand book that I also pulled out yesterday.

My other class is A&P. I’ll begin looking over my wife’s book as soon as I get the course syllabus. That and I’ll use A&P wallpaper on my computer to help study.

I won’t be giving up on reading; I’ll just be slowing the pace. It is healthy to know when to stop trying for your goals because of a life-changing event. It should be an interesting remainder of the year.

    Good luck sir, perhaps now I can catch up with all the books you’ve loaned me.
