A Statement of Purpose



I have been inspired by The Julie/Julia Project.  This lovely bit of blogging has been turned into a film starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, which promises to be adorable (see the pictures).  In brief, Julie of The Julie/Julia Project did the brilliant thing of taking a goal and turning it into a fun, humorous blog.  I'll admit it--the only reason I know about the blog is because, yes, I saw a commercial for the movie (cop-out, I know).  I wish I'd even been conscious of the scope of the Blogger Universe when this particular blog was up and running, but alas I was an Internet toddler at the time (I may as well have still been wearing Pull-Ups and velcro-belt shoes). 

But I digress.  
Coming home this summer from college, I realized that the number of books I'd read over the course of the school year just for fun totaled up to a grand ZERO.  And there were still so many books on my bookshelf that I had yet to read.  More than half of the books I own, in fact, are still waiting to be read.  And that, my friends, is a crying shame.  

There are nine weeks of summer left.  I'm going to get through as many of these puppies as I can.  

I tried desperately to come up with a cool name for my project--something catchy, interesting, representative.  But I've got nothing at the moment.  So, for the time-being, we'll leave it nameless.  Never fear, though.  I'll come up with something soon.
