Besides reading the Bible from cover to cover every year, President Bush read 95 books in 2006, 51 in 2007, and 40 in 2008. (As cited by former senior advisor Karl Rove.)
I am dumbstruck I think. If the President of the free world can read that many books in a year, what excuse have I?
I have a long list of books that I'd love to read including some I already own and have been gathering dust for years on my shelves. I seem to put reading (particularly non-fiction) at the bottom of my to do list, or not put it on at all because I seem to have so many other things to do.
But once again, if the President can find the time, perhaps I might be able to squeeze it in? (Or perhaps make it a priority as is the whole point.)
