A friend from work asked me what book I’d read on my recent Fraser Island holiday. It took me a while to remember the title [My Grammar and I; or should that be me?] because quite a lot has happened in my life since then. He laughed, then when I mentioned that the preceding week I’d read A Dance With Dragons (Games of Thrones book 6) and since then have read Thirteen Reasons Why and am currently in Act IV of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt, he looked rather startled. His comment? Well, you certainly read widely!
That I do. I love it. The way I see it, I’ve got just one life to live. And if I want to drink deeply, and suck all the marrow out of this life that I’ve been given, the best way is to live vicariously through the words of others; through the stories they tell and through the lives they’ve lived.
What was it that George R.R.Martin said?
I agree wholeheartedly.
So that’s my take for this morning. I’m looking to finish Peer Gynt shortly, which is great because I may actually be making some headway on my #TBR pile! Woohoo!
How about you, dear Reader? Besides this *scintillating* (ha!) blog o’ mine, what tales are you devouring at the moment ?
And have a wonderful week!
