I am loving reading on my Kindle. I know it is not for everyone but it is making a big difference for me. I read a little with my first cup of coffee and then again in the late afternoons or right before I got to sleep. I could never get very far with a paper book in bed but this seems to work. The other reason is that I always have a book at hand. With a paper book, it might be in another part of the house or I might have a few minutes while I wait for this or that. Like I said, it is working for me.
I read two books recently that I loved. The first is Piranesi. It took me a little bit to get into this story – it felt confusing at first. But then I found myself making so many connections. And I am still thinking about it, a few weeks after finishing. That is a sign of a book that worked for me.
The other is a translation and the U.S. version is titled The Heart. I know the subject might sound tough but this is another story that examines the impact of a tragic event on a wide circle of people. It stretched my perspective taking muscles.
I am 11 books in and still don’t have a bingo. I am starting to make a list in the margins of my bingo card for the books that won’t fit on this card. I just love all the potential categories and the thrill of the chase. Happy Reading.
