Love Books, Any Books

Nothing is better than time spent with a book. I mean any book because I read anything and everything from biography, to fiction, to history, to those books that focus on current events or politics. Relaxing with a story that has much greater depth and detail than anything that can be shown on television or in a movie is my favorite way to spend my time.

I just finished reading American Wife which I guess is a biography of Laura Bush with a veil of fiction thrown over it. I came to see Alice/Laura in a more sympathetic way but I am still not fond of Charlie/George or men like him.

Current reading is Water for Elephants and in a strange way it reminds me of A River Runs Through It because the story is told by an elderly man looking back. I have not read much more than the first chapter yet so I will let you know more about this book later.

Are you like me and use a good story to get away for a little while? What are you reading lately?

  1. I'm a voracious reader, too! I'll read most anything if it's well written. I read the "elephant" one and loved it. I bet you do, too.

    Right now I'm reading Unbroken and am surprised how much I'm enjoying it. I don't usually like to read non-fiction war books. It's definitely the flow of the book with really interesting facts and a fascinating man at the center.

  4. I am currently not reading anything, having just moved to my present location. I plan this weekend to check out the public library or maybe something from a used book store. I found the gate closed at the other site. Hope you were not shutting out past lives and readers. Cheers.
