Curling up with Fiction
It is a good thing to curl up with a book for a little while before bedtime. I like James Russell Lowell, saying, "Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character." We all need to spend some time alone; people who cannot bear their own company for a time have thin souls."
Gladys Taber, The Book of Stillmeadow
After a hullabaloo of months of moving, I'm in the mood to just be still. Go nowhere. Productivity thrown out the window. I'm in the mood to read, and not much else.
Perhaps after resting in May, June will bring renewed vigor for life. We'll see.
Right now it's books - fiction only.
Just finished: Eleanor and Park, by Rainbow Rowell
Reading now: The Chosen, by Chaim Potok
On my nightstand: Walking Across Egypt, Clyde Edgerton, The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines, and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, by Jamie Ford
