Dusty Books — Journey Home

Lake Macbride State Park, Dec. 2, 2020. Wednesday was discovering thick layers of dust on shelved books in my writing room. A long stream of cobwebs wove its way along the top shelf of one side, through 15 toy trucks collected during my transportation career. To get any focused writing done, of the kind an […]

Porque todos perdem no final. Mas com certeza o livro Drei Geschchten, do autor Patrick Süskind com 86 páginas, vai […]

Books and reality are fused (Philip K. Dick) — Biblioklept

…I can say with all truthfulness that for me the moment of greatest understanding in which I knew spiritual reality at last came in connection with emergency root-canal irrigation, two hours in the dentist chair.

The Story of a New Name — So Many Books

It took me several months to get through The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante, the second book in her Neapolitan series, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because I kept getting interrupted by other things. You see, I borrowed the book from the university library where I work and it had […]
