Sometimes while reading a book I gag over the “horrible writing.” The weak dialogue, the cliche ridden similes, the mechanical plots, the recycled ideas…I could go on. I roll my eyes. I hiss.
I keep reading. Why?! Why do I do that?!
Last night I made Macaroni and Cheese with Hot-dogs. My kids love it. I think it’s gross, just disgusting. All that sodium, saturated fat, dehydrated cheese, orange dye, manufactured animal remains…I took a bite. I took another. I ate a bowl. Why?!
I ate carrots and hummus today. I need to go read some Dickens or Austen or…something. Anyone have any good book recommendations that will make my brain feel alive and healthy again? I’ll take fiction or non.
