If you don't consider yourself a "reader" I challenge that notion. The mere fact that you are hear and have made it to this point in the post, proves that you ARE a reader. Maybe you don't sit down and read 1000 page novels in one sitting (no one ever really does) but you do read things. The summary of last night's basketball game IS reading. A website with dieting tips IS reading. Scrolling through Facebook reading everyone's status updates technically IS reading.
But here's the challenge. Today I want you to get away from some of those "easy" reading tasks and settle into something a little more satisfying. Don't pick a 500 page book if you've never completed something that long. But find something that interests you and go to the library or a book store and hold it in your hand. Take in the smell, the feel of the book. Listen around you while you're there. Both libraries and book stores are never nearly as silent as they are made out to be in the movies.
Once you find a book that you REALLY want to read, buy it or check it out, take it home and read at least 10 pages before bed tonight.
