This is a hard one! But not for the reason you might believe…
As part of my not-so-official resolutions for this year and life moving forward, is to read more. I think one of my greatest downfalls in my scholastic history (at the very least) was that I stopped reading a long time ago.
The Last Book I Read
I felt a strong connection to Steinbeck in the way he described his world. I envied his quiet protest against technology; using only pencil to write some of his novels. I wondered if his lack of dialog and attention to characters in his stories was his way of openly admitting his distaste for humans.
But then my older professor basically admitted she’d do weird things to him if he were still around, and that was the last time I thought about Steinbeck.
My Current Read
With my resolutions in full-swing (ha!), I picked up a book…The Kite Runner. I realized this was a hefty choice (as admitted on @reniethewriter), and have treated it as such. That just means I’m taking it slow and digesting each part. (Which reminds me, I totally have to post my reading log for this week!)
A Book I Love
If I’m honest, I don’t remember it all that well, but I do remember absolutely loving the story to death. I’m pretty sure it’s based on the real-life dramas of immigrants in London. Fantastic, I need to add that to my cart.
Why thank you, “Buy with 1-Click” button.
I need more books in my arsenal! What do you recommend? What is your favorite genre to read or write?
