I keep saying this, but I'm going to say it again: I really need to start keeping a more convenient journal for random scrawlings. I reckon I could scrounge together some good poetry from the junk that rattles around in my noggin, but I never write any of it down and I don't have the ability to call it forth at will.
I used to be so book-minded. I read almost constantly in elementary school, and almost as much in middle school. I could still crank through a novel pretty quick in high school but I tended to do other things. Since I got to college...I've maybe read a dozen books all the way through. Not counting reading for class.
And I think it shows. I certainly like the way I've grown up, the areas I've matured in, and just the general way I've turned out. But one thing I still miss is being able to keep my nose in a book for hours on end. I used to know so many stories. I've forgotten more characters and plot points then most people ever learn about. Or maybe not. I dunno, I just feel like that a lot.
I enjoy stories. I like telling them almost as much as I enjoy knowing them myself. Lately I've been reading a bit more...I re-read the Night Angel trilogy, which is pretty neat. I was trying to read A Song of Ice and Fire, but honestly it can get pretty long-winded and there's a lot of stuff in there that I'd rather not read. I'm trying to read Les Miserables, which is partially the reason I'm in this wistful mood. It's also quite long-winded, and archaic, and I barely understand most of the context (I'm a non-expert on both French culture and history) but for some reason I quite enjoy it. It reminds me of when I read The Count of Monte Cristo...not that they're similar. I should re-read that too.
Read more, kids. It's good for your brain.

I've been reading more lately, it is very nice. I've been reading more non-fiction though, which I never thought I would do.

I always keep telling myself I need to start reading again. I have two books that I bought over a year ago that I have yet to read and the next books in each of the series are already. Next weekend I'll be house sitting for a friend so I plan on bringing the books with me.

I don't read as much as a use to. I love getting into a good book and reading non stop. But with kids.. Getting 20 minutes in is difficult.

I tried to read les mis a few years back but instead played madden.
a song of fire and ice was super longwinded.. i gave that shit up quickly because I hate the dude's diction and syntax. The way he would allow each and every letter to combine into words that would eventually make their approach and their way into clauses before those clauses would somehow combine with one another with boobs dick incest sex sex gore blood longer sentences that just drone on and on and on and on and on and on and on and hey guess what on and on boobs dick incest sex sex blood gore was tiring.
