Wise, Witty, and Wacky Wednesday

Standard

I just finished a really good book- I’m a fast reader which means books don’t last long around me, and it also means I can re-read them because I will have forgotten or not noticed certain things. Anyway- back to the point- I have just finished a good book. Now I’ve seen movies- TV- read in books- about people who finish a good book, and sigh and sit there absorbing the amazing material they have just read, allowing the authors poetic words to float in their mind and marinate in the story. Me- I look for the next book. If I’ve read one in a series I want the next one NOW- if not maybe another by the same author- or maybe the same genre. What about you? When you’ve finished a book do you bask in the glory of that book or search your ‘to read list’ for the next one?

The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you the knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.

– Elizabeth Hardwick

Hello everyone just a quick note to let you know I will be at Comic Con until Monday, so I’m not ignoring you, I just don’t have any niffy computery stuff so I can stay connected while I’m gone. I’ll answer responses when I get back. But I think I’ve figured out how to post while I’m gone so Foreign Film Friday and Music Monday are still on. 🙂
