Resolution for 2009: Read More Books

Filed under: blogging, books, Christianity, Faith — Tags: , , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 11:11 am

If I’ve gained anything from blogging this year, it’s been that I have read more books.  I know it doesn’t make sense since I’m spending large amounts of time online, but I have definitely done more reading this year.

Some people felt that online books and blogs would be the death of traditional publishing.  Instead, I think the nature of what’s online, and on blogs in particular, is similar in content to what we find in periodicals.  For that reason, it’s no surprise that a large number of Christian magazines have ended or will end publication this year.  (I’ve always been a big reader of periodicals because the time from conception to finished product ensures that I am reading is most up to date.  With blogs, the time from completed ideas to publication is mere seconds.)

Back to books:  Tim Challies, a Canadian blogger with a vast readership in the U.S., gives 10 Tips to Read More and Read Better. Tim should know, he’s a voracious reader himself.   This link will also give you the comments, which you shouldn’t miss.

  1. Me to … I get the heads up for a book from a blog I enjoy and the stack on the bedside continues to grow. Brought about 50 books this year, read 30 odd, 5 on the go and 15 on hold.
