One of my favorite evening activities is to read. And the house reflects that, there’s not a room in the house that doesn’t have books in it….not a single room.
But I’m not one of those read one book at a time people, no, I am a more eclectic reader. I’ll read a few chapters of this book, skim some pages in another, later on pick up a different book and read a bit in it. Somehow keeping each book clear in my mind and enjoying them all.
Unless of course I’ve picked up a really good novel and have a day off….then I can immerse myself totally in the book forgetting to eat or answer the phone, never thinking about e-mail or anything except the next sentence in the book.
Right now I don’t have a good novel (nor do I want to take the time off to savor it), so I’m reading several different books on several different subjects. And while reading tonight I was struck by a quote from Shakespeare that was in one of the books.
The quote: “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so”. My reading for the evening came to a dead halt as I ponder that statement…..
Ah the joys of reading that leads to pondering………………
What are you currently reading?
My current reading list is in the sidebar………to be updated as I read……….

I just finished “Christ the Lord: Road to Cana” by Anne Rice. She’s rediscovered her Catholicism and has dedicated her writing to God. It was like reading a journal written by Jesus. Awe inspiring! Now I need something good to immerse myself in!
Just finished Charles Martin “Chasing Fireflys”. His writing is very discriptive.
Started reading his book ” The Dead Don’t Dance” last night. Had a hard time putting it down to get some sleep.
I just finished reading “The Reader” and “The Help”. Both were excellent.
I just started “Emma and Me”.
