What we’re doing here . . .
I know, I know. Another blog. Just what you need, right? Well, I’ll be up front with you. On this blog, we’re just talking about books. Not reviewing them, not slamming them, not selling them (until I get published, then I may suggest you buy one).
Instead, I’d like to duplicate the magical thing that happens when you’re in the middle of a conversation and you realize that one or more participants have read the same book. What follows is an entrance into an alternate universe, time or place. You teleport back into a story that changed you and compare notes with someone else who visited the same story, and came away changed as well. I’m convinced that moments like these (and the books that provide them) are one reason I’ve avoided therapy all these years.
Have you had a moment like this? If not, come back to this page! I hope we can discuss specific books, books in general, themes in fiction, scenes in fiction and a host of other things. This blog is for readers. Before I became a writer, I was a reader. It’s in my DNA. I love reading and I love to interact with other readers.
Even if you only read billboards these days, you’ll find suggestions to improve your repertoire. If you’re over the top well-read, then I invite you to teach us what you know. And if you’re like me and you love to read, you’ll find yourself in good company.
More than anything, this is a place to chat. And I will promise not to be too wordy. But I do love words, so . . . I’ll do my best.
