Well, I have almost made it through my TV fast. I have 3 days left. I have to admit, this hasn't been as tough as I thought it would be. I think in the 27 days that i have gone so far, three have been really tough. If I had any idea how to do math, I would reduce that to a fraction or a percent and amaze you with how little of the total time spent not watching TV, was spent craving it. But, alas, I am horrible at math. Anyway, here's a quick update on things so far.
So far, I have surpassed my goal of reading 4 books this month. I have read five. And, I'm going to try to finish one more before July 1. Here's what I've read. Reviews to come later. (Except for Blue Like Jazz, which can be found here and here)
-Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller
-Superman Returns by Marv Wolfman
-The Alphabet of Manliness by Maddox
-To Own a Dragon by Donald Miller
-The Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley
-I just started Lincoln On Leadership: Executive Strategies For Tough Times by Donald T. Phillips. Hopefully I'll finish it before July 1!
After the fast is over, I'll make sure I post reviews and learnings.
The funny thing about going a month without watching TV, especially when you've gone 25 years watching it A LOT, is that you don't necessarily look forward to going back to watching it...
