Fact: I love reading. I love books. I love holding them, smelling them, owning them, giving them away to be read, having them come home to me again. I love talking about books.
Fiction: I am the most well-read person you will ever meet.
I read a lot, but not compared to many. My own mother has me beat by a long shot. In fact, I get great glee when I come across a book I can recommend to her, since it is so often the other way around. The more I have studied literature and read books, the more I realize just how little I have read. And how much there is that awaits me. It almost makes me salivate to think of the next book I will stay up late devouring.
I find myself often asked for book recommendations. It doesn't take much to have me overflowing with words, lists, titles, authors. And yet, there is always another that I remember later. Always another. May it ever be so.
This "room with windows" will be my bookshelf. Here I will collect and converse about all good books. Other opinions will differ from mine, as would be expected. Opinions are both fact and fiction. And as one of my favorite quotes reads, "Fact and Fiction are different truths." I hope you find your own truths within a few of these books.
