Reading On The Decline: I’m Fighting Back

I came across a stat the other day that said nearly 1/3 of Americans have not read a single book in the last year. That includes paperbacks, Kindles, and…audiobooks. I have always loved reading, but sometimes it does get pushed to the back burner. Esquire has a list of ‘80 Books Every Man Should Read.’ I have decided to tackle it starting today.

Besides, with Blizzard and Wind Chill Warnings in effect, what could be more perfect than taking a dip in the hot tub, grabbing a bottle of wine, stoking the fire, and settling down on the couch with book #1 of 80.

I’m a big fan of my Kindle (much better than the iPad for reading books), and the Great River Regional Library in St. Cloud — where you can check out e-books for your device of choice.

Book #1 from the Esquire list of 80: Dubliners by James Joyce. Here I go.
