A wish, written down, is only a goal

I've started today (Thursday), and I intend to read the entire Book of Mormon by Tuesday. So far it's really good; Laman and Lemuel keep complaining and Nephi just figured out that the Liahona stops working if they don't pay attention to it.

Ask me how it's coming along. I need reinforcements or I'll never stick to it.

You can do it! Just keep truckin' on!

Don't you have finals still? Yes, I am a dream killer. Let me know when you get to my personal favorite--the Isaiah chapters in 2 Nephi. That's usually where I loose all momentum.

I'm with Jenette and against this whole thing. As with any good book, speed reading it for the sake of finishing it fast just makes you miss good stuff.

Kendra said...

Although I am leaning towards Jinx's argument of missing a lot when you speed read, I have to say that there are far worse goals to have than this one.

I hope you make it! I'm currently in Ether...but I think you will pass me up (maybe on Monday).

I've already read it slow. Many times. Reading it fast does skimp on the details, but it helps to get your mind around the big picture.

I think I'll start seeing trends that I've missed before.

That was my experience when I went through it fairly rapido a couple of years ago, some big concepts came across that I had missed doing the one chapter a day deal. Good Luck

I think it is a great idea. you can do it Thad. When I have read that intensly I see the consistent and beautiful messages of the book. Helaman makes a lot more sense that way.
