Truthful Tuesday — Reading is Fundamental

To be truthful, today is not Tuesday. However, yesterday Frank, aka PCGuy, published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and since I couldn’t get around to responding yesterday, I’m going to respond today. This week Frank wants to know…

1. Do you consider yourself an avid reader?

If you’re talking about books, I used to be an avid reader and would typically read at least one book a week on average. But lately, most of my reading is done on my iPhone’s newsfeed and on WordPress when I read posts from other bloggers.

2. What was the last book you read all the way through, and how long did it take you?

It was Octavia Butler’s The Patternist series. It’s a four book series and it probably took me about three weeks to read all four of the books.

3. Are there any books that, try as you might, you just haven’t been able to bully your way through?

After I saw the stage show, Les Mis, which I absolutely loved, I tried reading Victor Hugo’s book “Les Misérables,” the book upon which the Broadway musical was based. I have never been able to finish it…or even get too much further than the first few pages.

    We’re lucky that someone brilliant (or a brilliant collaboration) was able to make “Les Misérables” into a musical.

    It appears you must’ve really liked that set of books called The Patternist series. What did you like about it?

      I thought they were a well written, multi-generational tale compellingly told. I normally am not a fan of that genre of fiction (with immortal beings and paranormal powers), but a friend recommended the series and I was drawn in.

        It looks like the four could be interesting.

        Yikes; there’s a related book out of print and only available from Amazon for from 750 to over 900 dollars. Survivor
