I Need To Read – Josh Journal

This is an emergency, this is not a drill. I need to read!
I think this is the longest I have gone with struggling to read. Maybe I have gone longer without actually reading, but the will wasn’t there then. So it wasn’t a problem.

The problem this time is that I actually want to read. I have the book on my table, I have even read the first chapter.
Now, I can’t go forward with the book. How annoying.

For all I had heard about Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers, I never expected it to be this much of a struggle.
Finishing the first chapter was a chore in itself. I know I can will myself through anything, but at this point, I can’t help asking, “is it worth it?”

I have a large library of books calling for my attention. Why should I waste time snoozing on one?
I have already decided to move on to the next book. My question now is should I pick one from my current library, or should I wait for one I recently paid for?

Mary Ogundimu is releasing her book “Suffering and Smiling” in a few days. I have it on good authority that it will be a great read. I already paid for mine and should be getting it in a few days.
Should I wait and get back to reading with that or do I need a palate cleanser to precede it?

Whatever I decide, I’ll let you know in the next few days.
In the meantime, you can visit Mary’s website at
And you can order for your copy of Suffering and Smiling at

Hopefully, I get back in the mental space to read Outliers sometimes in the future.
Make my 2k no go waste.
