I am definitely not a big reader. So many times, I’ll pick up a book, begin reading and then put it down getting busy doing other things. Then, I’ll pick it up again and forget what I read last, only to have to start it all over again from the beginning. It’s an ongoing cycle.
Or, I often will start a book and get impatient with it because I’m dying to know the plot. Yes, you can say I’m the procrastinating, impatient reader.

Well let me tell you this, once I picked it up and started to read, the commitment was easy. WOW! From beginning to end, this book kept my interest and wanted me reading more.
