Greetings good people!
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to bring you up to date on the reading challenge i’ve accepted. The goal is to read 40 books in the calendar year 2015. To do so, I know I need to keep a regular reading pace and not fall behind. I need to read just over 3 books a month.
Things are going very well thus far. I’ve finished 2 books as of yesterday. Definitely on pace to finish my 40 books in a year reading challenge. Got to keep it up!
Read 25 pages in book #3 this morning. Interesting book by Dave Grossman. He is really talking up the correlation between violence in adolescence and young adults and their relation to video games, movies and television that feature violence.
Piece of the Books description:
There is perhaps no bigger or more important issue in America at present than youth violence. Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora: We know them all too well, and for all the wrong reasons: kids, some as young as eleven years old, taking up arms and, with deadly, frightening accuracy, murdering anyone in their paths. What is going on? According to the authors of Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill, there is blame to be laid right at the feet of the makers of violent video games (called “murder trainers” by one expert), the TV networks, and the Hollywood movie studios–the people responsible for the fact that children witness literally thousands of violent images a day.
You can keep track of my 2015 reading on my Pinterest page for it. I post the books as I am reading them. Or you can see what i’ve been reading there as well.
Hope you are well on your way to your reading goals.
Keep me posted. Would love to hear how you doing.
