A working father whose life no longer feels like his own discovers the transforming powers of great (and downright terrible) literature in this laugh-out-loud memoir. Andy Miller had a job he quite liked, a family he loved and no time at all for reading. Or so he kept telling himself. But, no matter how busy or tired he was, something kept niggling at him. Books. Books he'd always wanted to read. Books he'd said he'd read, when he hadn't. Books that whispered the promise of escape from the 6.44 to London. And so, with the turn of a page, began a year of reading that was to transform Andy's life completely. This book is Andy's inspirational and very funny account of his expedition through literature: classic, cult and everything in-between. Crack the spine of your unread 'Middlemarch', discover what 'The Da Vinci Code' and 'Moby-Dick' have in common (everything, surprisingly) and knock yourself out with a new-found enthusiasm for Tolstoy, Douglas Adams and 'The Epic of Gilgamesh'. 'The Year of Reading Dangerously' is a reader's odyssey and it begins with opening this book...

    But! I've accomplished so much between 5 and 6.30 am during the last month that I will stick to this habit, at least for one more month. During my second month, I also want to start exercising for the first 30 minutes. I did exercised few times in the last month, but now it's time to improve my morning routine. Other challenges theirЙ I've got to be very quiet in the morning. If not, the kids are waking up and my private moment is doneЙ

    OMG, thanks so much for all of the info that you are sharing here. It is EXACTLY what I needed. I'm still digging some links that you shared. One thing that for me is not clear now, but that I'm sure I'll figure out soon, is whether the website building is included in the commerce account. Once again, thank you!
