A Quick Read

I've been putting a lot of thought into what I wanted to have as a giveaway on my two sites.  In my mind, the most logical giveaway is a book.  But, I don't want to offer up a book that I haven't personally read.

I enjoy reading.  I really do.  I just don't do much of it.

In my younger days, my ADHD was so bad, that I would have to read four or five novels at a time. Otherwise, I would get bored.  Lately, my brain fog has been so out of control, that I don't have the mental ability to read one book at a time.  Heck, I could be reading a six paragraph post on a random website, get three paragraphs in, and forget what I was reading about.  Never mind reading an entire book.

In the last 18 months, I can only think of one book that I have read cover to cover - Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened.  I've started to read scores of books.  Finished only one. In fact, all told, I've probably spent $50,000 or more on books in my adult life.  And, I have rarely completed one.

It's embarrassing...especially for a writer.
