New year, old challenge...

I failed to make it to 50 books again last year, but I did come quite close to making it to the 15000 pages mark. So, I decided to up my goal of 15000 pages to 20000.

Born Standing Up

I brought my niece to the book store last night as a little celebration for graduating 5th grade.  We each got 3 books, even though I promised myself I wouldn't buy myself any. 

Anyways, I bought and read Born Standing up by Steve Martin last night.  For the first 50 pages I was convinced this book wasn't going to resonate with me.  90% of this partial biography of Steve Martin's life as a stand up comedian took place before I was born.  But something made me keep reading and by the end of the book I was bawling.  This book is truly worth the read no matter your age.  Maybe an older person could relate more, but the story Martin tells becomes universal and enchanting.
