I go on summer holiday Tuesday, returning the next week’s Wednesday; which is odd but to give my scheduler credit – she got us some super cheap airfare. I started my search for a summertime read last night. Figure the odds of this. I logged into facebook first and had an invite to a book club app called Goodreads. How does facebook know?
I don’t allow many apps to take over my personal profile but acquiesced for this. The timing was in its favor. For the next hour I added books to my profile and scoured those read and reviewed by my friends. And I didn’t find one book I was interested in. What’s with that?
In a perfect world I would read non-stop all day long, all year long. History suggests I go in ruts. Read tons for several months, go months without reading squat. Sometimes it’s my work schedule but more often than not it’s that I can’t find anything interesting. I actually downloaded the bible the other day – for 99¢ I might add. Haven’t read it since high school, and while I am hardly “searching” right now, it’s on my list of things to read. But good Lord I would rather read some page-turning thriller, some historical fiction, some lurid, graphic novel on my summer vacation.
