I am a reader. I am a writer. People assume I do these things to escape. You couldn’t be more right. I’m escaping a world I don’t like. A world I have no control in. In this world, I am nothing. I am a color, a height, a weight, a number. But in the world of books and writing, I am amazing. I am powerful. I am different. People are better. Worlds are endless. Change is possible. Life is manageable.
"THEY…USED…TO…READ! They’d READ and READ,
AND READ and READ, and then proceed
To READ some more. Great Scott! Gadzooks!
One half their lives was reading books!
The nursery shelves held books galore!
Books cluttered up the nursery floor!
And in the bedroom, by the bed,
More books were waiting to be read!
Such wondrous, fine, fantastic tales"
Almost done reading Stephen King’s ‘Under the Dome,’ have roughly 300 (or so) pages to go. Started reading it the day after Christmas. It’s a long one! I think other than ‘The Dark Tower’ series, this is my favorite story from Mr. King. Intense stuff. Curious how well (or crappy) the mini-series will be over the summer.
Most likely will write a review in the near future. Lots of themes within the book that got my thinkin’ cap on. :p
"Stories — be they films, novels, comic books, songs — are to human beings what pollen is to bees. They are the diet that sustains our hearts and minds and we spend our lives carrying them and spreading them as a second nature."
