Do you ever go through a phase when you just can’t read? Although unusual for me, I’ve been living in “can’t read a word” land for months now, until this week when Niall Williams reminded me that I lOVE READING!
How did I forget that? It’s one of my biggest luxuries. I know they’re expensive, and time consuming and my family don’t like it when I am lost in a book cause, guess what, I’m not focusing on them!
It’s a bit like when I paint. Yesterday, my youngest was twittering long, talking about something we had already talked about, while I was painting. Then she stopped and said. “You’re doing that thing again, where you make noises like you’re listening but you’re not!!” Caught![singlepic id=1241 w=400 h=400 float=]
So, here’s what’s on my bedside table.
Boy and Man by Niall Williams – If you haven’t read any of his books, simply put…please do! Starting with Four letters of love! I just finished Boy and Man and although I can’t say it’s a perfect book, there’s something about his prose that is literary, spiritual and page turning all at once. I loved it.
