Wishcast Wednesday: What do you wish to read?

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.

Another Wednesday, another wish!  If you want to know more about wishcasting, check out this fabulous site by Jamie Ridler!

This week’s Wishcast is…What do you wish to read?

The better question would be, what do I NOT wish to read… ;o)  I read A LOT.  I really love to read and always have.  My mother, who also is a fabulous reader taught all of her children the love of reading.  We all love different styles of books, of course, but each of us children has a large array of books in our homes.  I myself probably own over 500.  I don’t know how many books I’ve read in my life but it’s definitely in the thousands.

In my library I currently have fiction books picked up at garage sales that looked interesting, fiction books that I just can’t let go of once read–by authors Diana Gabaldon, Dan Brown, the Harry Potter Series, Searching for April Raintree, I Know This Much is True {my absolute favorite book ever!}, etc.  And, I started a collection of the “old-timers”–Mark Twain, Virginia Woolf, Charles Dickens, etc. 

I also have a wide array of non-fiction books–anything by Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Emerson, and Thoreau, spiritualism, mandalas, journalling, project management, law of attraction, women in history, self improvement, crocheting, knitting, drawing, home improvement, etc…

I actually, just signed up for a book reading challenge by Good Reads.  I’m challenging myself to read 100 books this year–I probably do read 100 books a year anyways, but I’m tracking it now and it gives me a chance to look up and see what others have thought of books I’ve read or want to read.  Last night I went looking for my next fiction book from my “library” and went on Good Reads and decided on “American Pie, A Novel” and started it last night before bed–I read most nights before bed.  If you check out Good Reads you can “friend” me if you like, I’m listed under Ceanne.

So…as you can see, I can ramble on about reading till the end of time, but I really should get to the answer to Jamie’s question.

As I’ve recently posted, I started a 12 step program a few weeks ago.  So far, things have been going well where that’s concerned, I feel a lot of “stuff” coming up and I believe I am dealing with them as best as possible in consciousness.  But…there is a lot to read to learn about my illness and I have been procrastinating on that.

So I wish to read more about the 12 step program and learn about my illness and how I can recover from it and live a full, happy, contented life with life as it happens.

Read every day something no one else is reading.  Think every day something no one else is thinking.  It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.
