Reading Deprivation Week seems all wrong to me. Reading has never stood in the way of my creativity.
Surfing aimlessly on the Web YES!
But NOT reading. In fact I have a confession to make...I'm a recovering non-reader. I use to love to read and then I had kids and I stopped reading for myself.
OH sure I still read but Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle don't REALLY count. So depriving me from reading is like asking a recovering alcoholic to hang out in the bar or a recovering anorexic to just skip a few meals.
*****BTW -I gave up T.V. as of 12.21.2005 almost 100% (except for E.R. I watch no T.V.)
Aimlessly surfing the web? Not yet but maybe for Lent this year.
