My Love/Hate Relationship with Reading

Hi, my name is Matthew Moore, and I don't read... as often as I should.

I'm not sure how big of a percentage I fall into compared to the rest of the college community, but I am the kind of person who HATES reading during the school year. I'm the kind of person who enjoys reading, but only what I have a desire to read, not what I'm told to read. So reading textbooks or books for classes is something that really turns me off to reading as a whole.

However, it's summer now. Summer means no school work, no required reading, and time to do whatever you want. Summer is usually when I try to find something I know I will enjoy to read. My selection for this summer is A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller. I loved Blue Like Jazz and how it challenged my beliefs and made me realize what I do and don't believe, and I'm hoping for great things from this book as well. I'll be sure to let you guys know how it's going.

On a side note, my wonderful girlfriend Nicole Graham has started a blog of her own, and it would be awesome if you guys went and took a gander at it when you finished here.
