Anything, really. I read a pretty wide variety of books & I just set myself a 100 book goal for the year. I’d really like to surpass that, if possible, so I need LOTS of books to read.
You could also just add me on Goodreads.
AMID the squawks and pings of our digital devices, the old-fashioned virtues of reading novels can seem faded, even futile. But new support for the value of fiction is arriving from an unexpected quarter: neuroscience.
Brain scans are revealing what happens in our heads when we read a detailed description, an evocative metaphor or an emotional exchange between characters. Stories, this research is showing, stimulate the brain and even change how we act in life.
I suppose that I’m a day behind on the actual announcement, but I just found out that Stephen King himself will be doing the audiobook reading for The Wind Through the Keyhole. I’m pretty excited about that, & even though I don’t generally listen to audiobooks, I might look into it in this one instance.
Ah, I’m such a junkie.
I’m in the process of reading The Dark Tower, the final segment of the book series of the same name, and I seriously don’t think that any book has ever broken my heart as thoroughly or devastatingly as this one currently is. I sincerely cannot stop crying.
Stephen King is a master of his craft, and I have a massive amount of respect for the man, but I will never forgive him for sacrificing Jake for himself.
(I had to take a break from reading because my Kindle died, but I wanted to come get this out of my system while it reboots.)
