Since I've started my 52 Books, 52 Weeks project, several side effects have emerged. The pile of magazines both in the living room and by the bed are growing. My television viewing has dropped to an all-time low. I'm spending less time in front of the computer and more spread out on the couch with a book in my hand (and a laptop by my side, though, I have to admit). I've also taken to reading more before going to sleep, which has often led to grogginess in the morning when I head to work.
Still, I'm very pleased with the project so far. The books have been well-written and interesting, and I can almost feel my brain rejuvenating.
