Let's face it. I stopped reading right around the time I switched from answering phones to writing very long, complicated, and involved briefs at work. All of a sudden, my day was nonstop reading and writing, which I have fallen into by pure chance. I went to school for writing, so to have found a job where writing is my main task is really lucky. It's nothing I would ever write for fun, but when I'm working on something there, the wheels start turning for what I want to work on here.
This year, I've decided I need to get back into the reading spirit. It's been a while since I explored new books (even when I was reading, I was mostly RE-reading), so what better kind of books to read than ones about Pittsburgh?! (This is a blog called Everything Better Pittsburgh after all.)
My goal is one a month, or twelve on the year (cause I'm calling it now: I will never keep pace with one book a month). I cheated and started reading the first book in December (I needed the head start, really!) and I'll "review" the selection once I've finished it. I started off with a graphic novel to ease my way back into things. Baby steps.
If you have any suggestions for PGH books I should read over the next year, please let me know! Leave a comment or send me an email! Yeah! 2012!
