Unstuck: August 29, 2008

August 29, 2008

Last night proved to me — though I didn’t need proof — that what I choose to read on a given day is as much a function of how I feel that day as it is a response to the book itself. The other day, when I was pulling books out of my library pile in the wake of finishing Black Ships, I found Among The Bohemians : Experiments In Living, 1900-1939 by Virginia Nicholson. I opened it up, skimmed a few paragraphs, and set it aside. It was not at all what I wanted.

Last night, I picked the book up again and was immediately drawn in. It’s fascinating and well-written; what’s not to love? It’s also likely that this is a book that will feed my imagination, feeding my stories. It’s nearly 400 pages long, so I’m thinking I’ll be reading this for a few days. And then I’ll have to choose something else.
