Hi fellow ReBooWee participants. It is the end of week one and I am anxious to hear how it went for you.
I have to admit, without the pressure of ReBooWee and the accountability to all of you, I would not have made the time to read. I would have spent the time watching t.v. or surfing the Internet.
I am so glad I spent the time reading instead. I finished an inspiring book called, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, a true story about a young African boy who couldn't afford a secondary (Jr. High/High school) education, but read books on electricity and through perseverance and hard work built a windmill out of scrap parts that eventually changed his life and that of his village.
There was a quote in the book that not only applied to William Kamkwamb's story, but to our first week of ReBooWee, "If you want to make it, all you have to do is try."
I tried and I did it! Now I am already looking forward to finishing another book this week.
Were you able to finish a book? If so what did you read? Can you share one sentence about the book?
If you didn't get to finish a book, it's not too late to get involved. This is a brand new week, so jump on board and see what happens.
