Read One Book a Week – Modern Nerd
So here’s the challenge: starting next Monday, I’d like you to read one book a week for one month. Choose your first book and follow-up text right now. Go on. I’ll pop the kettle on while you do it. Don’t do it for me, though. Do it for you.
A great challenge that, if you are like me, seems daunting on the face of it. It is made less daunting by Nick correctly pointing out that one can get through a 350 page book in a week by reading 50 pages a day.
That said, my biggest challenge is that I need a tremendous amount of focus to read anything long form (it is just the way my brain works). For me, solitude is the only real solution (seems interruptions can’t help themselves from finding me) and I get such solitude so rarely. Therefore, I do not even try.
