I have been reading too simple. It’s good every now and again to read something just for the heck of it and not worry about redeeming value but the key phrase is “every now and again.” Just like your body craves healthy food the mind craves a challenge, and the books I’ve read lately have been far from challenging.
Of course it may just seem that way because I have stumbled on more bad books since I received my Kindle at Christmas. (And boy have some of them been truly awful.) Regardless, I need to clean my pallet. The easiest way to do that is to go back to the classics. I see Dickens and Twain in my immediate future…and possibly some Tolkien as well. 🙂
