I like books. They can be an innocuous escape from the real world or a jarring reminder of what the real world really looks like.
They help us empathize with situations we’re unfamiliar with. Reading about things, people, histories, environments, circumstances we haven’t experienced firsthand can give us the opportunity to spend a few days in someone else’s shoes.
Variety is what I look for most in my reading choices. Research-based writing is interesting, but after a few hundred pages of experimental studies and statistical evidence, I’m ready for a change. The same is true for science fiction, mystery, autobiographies, drama. I need a balance.
Maybe you’ve solely dedicated your reading love to books of a certain genre, and that’s cool too. Hopefully something here sparks your interest.
Happy reading! Let me know what you’re reading right now, in the comments. I’m always looking for recommendations.
So tell me…
Anything here look intriguing?
