I’ve kept a log of the books I read since 2011 and I’ve noticed something interesting this year. After reading 400 books I had marked 20 of them as favorites which is 5%. I’m now on my sixth book for this club, and already three of them have become favorites that I want to keep around to reference or reread! I’m so thankful for the push to read books of a higher quality than I normally would. My consumption of non-fiction has more than doubled. Most of the books we’ve covered so far are books I could have chosen myself, but not at this rate and enthusiasm. As a student teacher in math and science I’ve been exposed to a lot of useful material for work and university as well.
Have anyone else noticed any unexpected benefits of joining this book club?
