I’m a reading man. When I’m not working, spending time with my family or driving between here and Bartlesville I can often be found with a book and a hot beverage. This is an especially enjoyable combination when you add a recliner, a blanket and perhaps a storm raging outside the window. Even the time I spend monitoring tests and quizes Is usually used for reading. I’ll read everything from High Fantasy to Vatican Horror to Science Fiction to Theology. I seem to be stuck on High Fantasy and Theology at the moment, but it’s a phase that may pass with time.
I’m also a poor man. Don’t get me wrong, I’m genuinely content and glad to live the way I do, but I don’t have a lot of extra spending money. As such, I really only get to buy a book once or twice a month, tops. This is actually probably a good thing. It makes it so much sweeter when I get to go the store and actually purchase a book I’m dying to read.
Due to this situation, I find myself creating a wish list. There is a running list in my head of books I would dearly like to read. When I go to the library, I’m working off that list. When I do get the chance to purchase a book, I find myself painfully narrowing down my wishlist and agonizing over the top five or so in deciding which one to buy.
What this portion of my blog will do is let you in on what is actually on my wish list. This isn’t me asking for someone to send me the books I want; not at all. This is just a way for you to see what interests me, what catches my eye, and why I read what I read.
Hopefully, this will also be a chance for all of you to tell me how my taste in books is. Have you enjoyed a book that I want to read? Let me know why so I can be looking for it. Think I shouldn’t waste my time? I’d love to know that too.
Watch and wait, my friends. Wish-List posts are coming.
