All of a sudden I find myself in a beautiful place…I’ve read 3 really awesome books in a row. Really good books. That doesn’t happen to me very often and I hope I’m not going to jinx myself by talking about it! I feel like with books, it is sometimes feast or famine. Does that ever happen to you? Let’s hope I can keep the winning streak going a little longer…
The other part of this discussion involves the big decision: do you put down something that you find isn’t interesting to you or do you force yourself to finish it? I used to fall into the “force” camp but the older I get, the more I realize I am letting too many good ones slip by while wasting precious time agonizing over the books I could care less about. In the words of (o wise one) Elsa from the movie Frozen, it’s time to let it go. Let them go, those “not for you” books. And I have. Whew! What a relief! Look…more time for the great reads!
Here’s hoping you are on a roll with your reading as well in this new year. There are lots of great titles to discover and if you need any suggestions, you can always ask the friendly Reference staff at RRPL or better yet, check out The Reading Room, our homegrown database of librarian-reviewed titles!
