I’ve stared at the mantle that holds some of my more current reading selections many times but just now wonder about what these selections say about me:
Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes
The Invention of Wings
Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen
The Poisonwood Bible
Where Snowflakes Dance and Swear: Inside the Life of Ballet
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime
This Is Where I Leave You and
Alice Munro short stories
It would be difficult to try to find a common thread binding these selections, but all of them highlight a different part of my personality- of my interests- of what I want to spend my time perusing. And while these are certainly not all that I have read recently, they are my name tags, labeling who I am.
What do those who don’t know me assume by reading this list of preferences? Well, hopefully that I am someone who embraces reading at a variety of levels. Someone who enjoys the arts and a good time. Someone who relishes those extraordinary words- into sentences-into paragraphs that capture moments of reality that I can only imagine, but luckily am able to thanks to some talented authors.
I wonder what will join this lineup next? I can’t wait to find out!
