I have been reading Bruce Handy’s Wild Things The Joy Of Reading Children’s Literature as An Adult.  In it is a reference to Portnoy’s Complaint which I had heard of but never read so I filed that away to read later.

Farther on Handy mentioned  the Grimm’s Fairy Tales which I have been reading off and on over this last year.  He spoke of the way the tales were old and weird.  He compared them with other authors not quite so impure.  I sat here thinking that I am reading these things and learning about another world.  One that isn’t just King, Deaver, Cornwell, or Gaiman.

Reading is essential in one’s life if you are to grow and learn. I’m sure Handy’s novel will introduce other suggestion to follow up with.  But for now I’ll continue to search my new world.

One thought on “Thoughts

  1. I agree on the reading – I’ve recently re-discovered a favorite author who hadn’t written anything new in a good 10 years. After reading her ‘new’ books I decided to check out her old ones again. Just finished another one (Library is closed Fridays so I can’t get more today). That got me to thinking – went upstairs & discovered I had FOUR that I’d read and now get to RE-read of hers! YAY! (I love detective/murder mysteries and she’s, in my opinion, one of the best!) Faye Kellerman (her husband is a huge best seller/writer but I don’t like his style half as much as hers – he tends to ramble…sigh).
