You read a lot of books! How can I read more books on a regular
basis and find time to incorporate reading into my life?
The best advice is to start reading in your
interest area and then to make reading a priority. Pick any genre you enjoy and
then read one book from that genre a week. To get ideas for books to read,
search Amazon.com or your favorite book site for specific topics of
Eventually you will find you are
reading faster. At some point you may even start to read one book a day,
depending on how much time you set aside for reading. I've found that constant
reading is what helps me read faster. I also like to occasionally read four or
five books about the same topic. This keeps me focused on one subject.
Programs that help you to speed read
seem to be more about reading to learn facts or to remember content. If you read
a lot of books, you will develop your own reading style.
One book leads to another. Often I find common threads
of experience running through various books I'm interested in, as if the books
were looking for me and wanted to be read!
I find that we all train ourselves in
certain habits, so be patient with yourself. Work your way into it slowly, like
a garden. Plant a few books and see what grows.
What is your favorite movie?
I have quite a few favorites. I think CAMELOT has always been my
favorite movie. It was also made the year I was born.
I love the witty humor and it is so terribly heart-wrenchingly sad at the end.
It is also the first movie I ever remember seeing
as a teenager. The castle scenes are spectacular. My parents took us to Europe
when I was a teenager and I remember being fascinated by the castles.
I finally made a page of my favorite
movies so far...
Camelot (1967) DVD
What are your goals for the future?
I want to travel more and see more
castles, exercise more and live
life to the fullest I also want to read everything I can get my hands on because this is where we can expand our thinking and inspire ourselves to be
better human beings.
Angels are symbolic of
the world we can't see
but sometimes feel is
active in our lives.
