The Book of Sawce: Prologue

My friends already know, but for those who wander upon this–I have an English degree.  I didn’t get it out of some desire to be a teacher (I really, REALLY don’t).  I decided to get an English degree because I love reading (not the best decision one can make).  Or at least, I used to.  See, the rough thing about being an English major is it kinda kills your desire to read for fun.  I used to devour books, but since declaring my major and earning that degree, I haven’t read too many actual books.  Sure, I’ve knocked out comics by the scores (possibly even the hundreds), but not many books.  If I’m not mistaken, I only read seven books in 2014.  If 20-year-old me knew that, he’d be an even more disappointed person than he already was.

Anyhoo, I came across this 2015 reading challenge on tumblr, and it excited me.  I don’t know why a list suddenly reignited the passion for reading in me, but it did.  So, I’m going to follow this list and read at least 50 books this year.  I also intend to do a little blog post about each one so that I’ll write more.

Fifty books versus one man.  One very intimidated man.

Up first, a book with 500+ pages.  What will it be?  Stay tuned to find out.

(Some folks already know, but whatevs.)
