Beyond the University Why Liberal Education Matters

Hey, I met my reading goal . . .

— feeling happy

So I set my BookLikes reading goal for the year at 52 - averaging a book a week is fair, I think. 


Today, BookLikes tells me I met that goal. This might be the fastest I've ever met my reading "goal" - which is, of course, silly and artificial anyway - (in the years I've been keeping track). 


Of course, there have been some plays (one-sitting books), poetry (generally shorter, although I read them very slowly), and kids' books. What this also means is that my reading is diverse - I can be proud of a reading list that includes literary classics and mass-market pop culture.


It's not about quantity - it's about breadth. 


Four more months in 2015 and many books to come. Stay tuned.
