You would think that, for someone who has always loved to read, that literature wouldn’t be a hard task. Au contraire. This is because my taste in reading has always ran to science fiction, history and how-to.
That doesn’t mean that I haven’t read great literature, but it was always because I had to for a class assignment. I did occasionally find the odd book, such as The Great Gatsby, that I enjoyed tremendously. But right now, probably because I have other things on my mind, I’m drawing a blank on any author that I enjoyed that I haven’t already used as a subject. So, with regret, for this week I’m going to have to take a pass.
And lord help, the next two weeks are dance and theater, two more weak spots. I’m going to have to consider on this.
