Yup. That's what I've been doing. Been reading old books lately. Just want to refresh the stories in my head. I'm in the final chapters of "The Da Vinci Code" and "Dracula". After that, I will be reading through "100 little Mysteries" ed. by Isaac Asimov. I have a fourth of the book to finish. Shortly after that, I'll finish the Lumley book and start with another historical mystery featuring Edgar Allan Poe. I'm really into the historical mysteries. I'm still looking for the "Daughter of God" by Perdue (it's so hard to find!) and am awaiting another adventure movie. The sequel to "National Treasure" entitled "The Book of Secrets".
If fate dealt me a different hand, I see myself as an archaeologist. I could be in the likes of Professor Sydney from the TV series, "Relic Hunter." I've always longed to find out what happened to the Babylonian Gardens and I've been fascinated with the bible stories of the Old Testament. Which is why I love fiction - historical, fantasy, sci-fi. They delve into the possible and impossible. And whatever we can create is only limited by what we can think up.
To my fellow bookworms, read on!
PS: The new Harry Potter book just released TODAY!! Yey!
Some people wonder why I don't join book/reading clubs. Honestly, I would like to but I think they won't be able to get a lot out of me. Reading for me is a personal pleasure. It's as solitary as writing. Your tastes in subject could be so different from mine. But I do see the point of groups like that. At least they can share different POVs and perhaps introduce you to a new author. That's something I can look forward to. Maybe I should hang out online more often. Any bookworm groups out there? I'm ready to be adopted!
