Darkness is falling, as is the snow outside. Inside, we have hot tea and books. Lots of books. Thousands of books. Fiction, non-fiction, old, new, big, little, hardback and paperback. I sit here, surrounded by books and can't choose what to read.
Do I read a classic like Mark Twain? Probably not. I've read all of them and want to find something new.
How about a cozy mystery? Love them. And romances. And thrillers. And have even been known to read a western or two. Science fiction and fantasy? Oh yes.
Admittedly, I don't read many non-fiction unless I'm doing so for a particular reason - research or a particular interest in the subject.
I've read a lot of the children's books - they are so wonderful. Sitting here at my desk, I can see copies of ones that I read to my children when they were little and now they read to theirs. I love it when people come in and say "Oh! I remember reading this as a kid."
The "teen" books are good too, though most of them are so full of darkness and angst, they're often difficult to read. But I guess that fits with those years.
So what should I read? What would you read if you had your choice of anything in the store?
