Random thoughts on Reading

There are so many books I am supposed to like or love and I don't, and I feel guilty and resentful about it.  Then there are those hated books that everyone is forced to read in school that turn out to be good when certain  teachers are not forcing their perpectives down our throats. Hmph!

What I am having a problem with these days are all these teachers who have blogs on the internet.  They keep writing about interesting books and if I read them I won't have time to look at television anymore!  I need to be more selective about the blogs I read.

Not that there are a lot of shows I watch anymore.  The only new show that has piqued the interest of Jake and I lately is Mad Men.  The other shows I don't understand.  The Bachelor for example; why would anyone want to marry a stranger?  I just don't get it.  I am too old to comprehend, I guess.

And speaking of age, I cannot handle those new electronic readers.  Now this may not have anything to do with age, it may be my nearsightness.  I just want a real book with pages I can turn, smell, and bookmark.  I'm just saying that's how I see it.

  1. There are a lot of books that I don't like, and have no desire to read. Whenever a patron tells me that I should read such and such book, my interest is never peaked. I don't like science fiction, and I don't like mysteries.


What's on your mind?
