Books... OOOO A butterfly!

I actually finished a book and it wasn't a requirement! For me this is a big deal when ever it happens. I've read and finished plenty of books that I were required to read because of school or work assignments... but when it comes to just picking up a random book, especially if it's not fiction, I rarely finish it. It's not that I don't like reading... but seriously I don't like reading! Also when it comes to books it's like I have A.D.D. or something. I'll start a book and really enjoy that first part but then I'll see a shiny new cover of another book. "OOOOOO! I want to read that instead!" And then there's times when I'm reading and I start thinking about other things and imagining I'm a space commander and the fleet need my skills or we'll face certain doom from the evil space pirates and I need to save a pretty girl etc... not that I've imagined that before ;)

So there have been many a book that I have started, loved, and NEVER FINISHED! But today marks a special day. I finished a book! It took waaaay longer than it should have, especially since the book is meant to be read in 40 days... I honestly don't remember when I started so... It was that long ago. The book was "Stronger" by Brian "Head" Welch. It was a really good book and an easy read full of lots of stories from his life. Some made me laugh, some made my jaw drop, some reminded me of myself.

Now what? Oh yeah... start another book. Any suggestions?
