I was never one of those kids that you had to assign a reading list to over the summer. I knew how to read when I was three, and literally was always reading for the next 40 years – books, magazines, newspapers, signs, other people’s books….I would even read the back of shampoo bottles under bathroom sink when I was a kid and I’d forgotten to take a magazine in the loo with me.
And that’s….started to wane. I don’t know whether it’s because of a lack of downtime, or an Internet habit, but I am not reading as many full-on books any more. So I’m turning librarian on myself and making a list of 20 books to read; fiction, non-fiction, you name it.
But that’s where I’m asking you to come in. If I pick all the books, I won’t go much outside my comfort zone; so I’ll pick ten books, and you pick the other ten. Go.
