Aha!: October 23, 2008

October 23, 2008

I need to get to bed — I want to read before I go to sleep, but I have to go to sleep early, because I have to be up early — so this is going to be brief.

I went to the library today to drop off a bunch of stuff and pick up four holds that had come in. One of them was Danny Goldberg’s Bumping Into Geniuses: My Life Inside the Rock and Roll Business. It looked interesting, so I started it on the bus.

It was exactly what I wanted. I’m not sure if it’s the breeziness and liveliness of the prose that makes this what I want. Maybe it’s that Goldberg the narrator is a likable guy. Or maybe it’s just that I’m interested in the stories he’s telling. I don’t know why — I just know it’s true.

This is probably the happiest place to be as a reader: The place where you have exactly the book you wanted.
