Closing The Book

I have realized I have a bit of a chronic problem.

I don't finish reading books.

I think this may have started the year of our engagement. We were recommended A LOT of books, and I wanted to get all the knowledge I could before we got married. So I started just about every book that was recommended to us, and I dragged Peter along on the word absorption adventure with me. So we started Love & Respect. And I Promise. And I Promise You. And about 3 other books related to more specific aspects of marriage.

Then we got married, and the plague of starting to read or reread books and leaving them unfinished continued. Too Busy Not To PrayA Wrinkle in Time, Emily of New Moon, FoundationAs Sure As the Dawn, and Hooked: New Science on How Casual Sex Is Affecting Our Children.

Wow. That's a lot of books.

I definitely feel like I get the gist of a book before it is over, but I know I'm missing out on a lot. Maybe it's my constantly full and changing lifestyle? Maybe it's that I find enough to apply to my life that I just stop before I get overwhelmed or forget things? Maybe I'm just suffering from the short attention span of my generation?

I don't know what the reason is, but I definitely want to finish more of what I start.
