If you love books and reading, well you need to check out the blog posts of Molly Templeton on Tor. com.
"Molly Templeton has been a bookseller, an alt-weekly editor, and assistant managing editor of Tor.com, among other things. She now lives and writes in Oregon, and spends as much time as possible in the woods. You can also find her on Twitter @mollytempleton"
She has an amazing voice, thoughtful, insightful, generous - to herself and others, and full of grace and kindness.
It is always a joy to read her prose as she wanders through the pages and piles of our books and the love of reading.
Do you ponder and fret over your TBR pile? Do you have a TBR pile? Do you know what this means? Hey, I didn't at first - though it became clear that I always had one. To Be Read pile...that comforting collection of books waiting patiently well...too be read of course. How big is yours? Is it merely a physical one or do you have some kind of electronic list where everything of interests get tagged and added to. My own Amazon wish list, which thankfully doesn't count up how much I put there, is my main such list. Anything that catches my fancy, I locate on Amazon and then add to the list. It is scary how big it is. And yes, I do eventually buy some of those books.
What about you.
Anyway, Molly tells us all how to deal with such things and how to just enjoy the joy of reading and book owning.
You owe it to yourself to check her and her blog out...read it while your sipping coffee or tea one morning.
Gary Jaron's musings.
In my High School Art Department someone had made an ornate sign on hung it on the wall that read: 'Ignore this sign completely.' A paradox couched in sarcasm and irony. This blog is for random musings on anything and everything that comes into my head.
