I read an enormous amount. But I have not, in recent years, read for the same purpose, with the same frequency or with the same degree of pleasure as I have in my past. I’ve resolved to do something about that. My exploration and rethinking of how, what, when and why I read.
2018 has been a mad and crazy year. Throughout, I’ve been able to get some writing done. Not as much as I intended or hoped for, but a surprising amount nonetheless. As the year comes to an end, I take the time to explore the writing that you most enjoyed, and offer some insights into where the articles came from and what they meant to me.
I have a confession to make. I abandon books. I used to read them all the way through, and now I often give them up part way. A spate of articles recently challenged me to question the practice, and whether I should doggedly keep reading.
We just wrapped up our ‘Taking a Read on 2014’ webinar. As always, we had a good deal of fun with it. If you weren’t able to join us live, then you can view the recording here: [vimeo http://vimeo.com/114968429 width=600]
