[1: 652 of 10,000] Took Me 2 Years 8 Months 2 Days To Finish This Book

In Review on June 9, 2012 at 10:41 PM

I finally finished Barack Obama’s “Dreams From My Father” autobiography today after 2 years 8 months and 2 days since I purchased and started reading it exactly on March 4, 2010. That’s the longest time that took me to finish a book that I intentionally purchased and decided to finish. I do have books I’ve totally abandoned.

What took me that long? I’ve been preoccupied about much important things and can’t spare a lot of time to sit down and read it.

As much as I can I read some pages. I have to admit that I am curious to know Barack’s past and thoughts. There were few slow pages that made me pause longer. It was filled with ideal words, truths about life’s painful reality, and ended with a nice story that begins a whole new history.

It is inspiring and reminded me of the TV series Jack & Bobby; imagine this man who has experienced so much questions and quite a lot of turns has soon became the first American-African US President eventually. It’s a great read.
