Reading is…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was amazing. I wish I had been on the beach as it set and I saw the lightshow was spectacular. There can be no better sunset than the one you see except perhaps the one you imagine.

I am reminded about my past today. There are a lot of things I don’t think about often, some of my past is on that list. I am reading almost as much as when I was in my teens now. We did not have the luxury of a close library so I read everything in the house back then. A lot of history, war, mystery, and thrillers that were in the house. I then used the school library all I could. A lot has changed.

With the advent of e-readers I now have access to virtually unlimited books. I have found this to be an amazing experience and wish I would have had such growing up. Still, there is nothing like holding a book, and I ordered a copy of a series I am reading today, and a few others recently.

What am I reading? That is what is strange. Self help, romance, sci fi, drama, mystery, and a slew of indie authors, both good and not so good. The journey is awesome and I wonder if I will make my lofty Goodreads goal this year, miss, or exceed it. We will see.

Anyway, when I was younger I was considered a freak for reading as much as I did. In the long run I gave up this pastime in favor of work, and more work. Still it was in my heart and now I am running a little rampant again. We will see how it goes.

So as the sun sets on another day, do books inspire you? Are you lucky enough to see into someone else’s experience or imagination? Do you see past your limitations and open your mind to new possibilities, not from reading short paragraphs on partially digested sites, but on the totality of an item? Open your mind and see there is more to reading each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep reading…
