Book Love

“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”

— Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

“Insights don’t usually arrive at my desk, but go into notebooks when I’m on the move. Or half-asleep.” -Hilary Mantel

At some point over the last few years I lost my desire to read. I blame vision issues. But I suspect that spending the majority of my time in hospitals or at home caring for others impacted my ability to hold on to any interest in a book I might try to read. I had to find contentment in reading to five year old Beej. And read, I did. 

Then a book by my favorite author was released. And I noticed a biography of an actress whose movies I loved. Without warning, I found myself back in the game. Instead of spending time jumping from one social media account to another or shopping on Amazon, I look forward to participating in a reading challenge and READING!

My hope is that with reading, my writing will come out of hibernation. Then I will have to start poring through my notebooks and decipher the notes of ideas, dialogue, character and more that I’ve been jotting down!
