Plan: Read Books

Last friday, my friend Erwin made a comment about my lack of enthusiasm/enjoyment for reading comics and books, he said I watch too much TV.

Now, this is true. I do watch a lot of TV. In fact,  75% of the time I spend on the computer is either watching some TV series or downloading it. What can I say, while I like books, watching movies and television is so much easier and less time consuming specially for a person who’s as busy as I am.

Which brings me to my plan: cut back on the TV and spend more time on books. I just downloaded episode 1 of the new Survivor season, but I’m no longer watching it because of this plan. I also already stopped watching Rubicon (but still downloading it just in case), House, Chuck and a bunch of other dramas. Comedy, I can’t stop watching them, sorry.

Anyway, here’s a list of books I’m planning to read or re-read or finish:

  • Bill Simmon’s Book of Basketball (to finish)
  • J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye (re-read)
  • Stephen Chbosky’s Perks of Being a Wallflower (re-read)
  • Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (to read)
  • J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey (to read)
  • Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club (to read)
  • Chuck Palahniuk’s Rant (to read)
Of course, and as always in my case, planning is just one thing. Execution is a whole ‘nother playing field.

    They say reading and conversations prevent Alzheimer's disease when you get old. So yeah, get into more books if you can.Thank you for giving me an idea on what to blog about next. Books. And why I know nothing about "Twilight" sort of things.

    Read some comics too! If you don't like superhero shit, We3 is a good place to start. Then move on to Watchmen (I know, I know, but it's a rewarding read), and Batman: Year One.
