It’s one of those mornings in which I woke up 10 minutes earlier to peer at my TBR shelf and pick a book. Is it going to be Hemingway’s wife? Racial intolerance in South Africa? White girl servant on a plantation? A Robert Goddard encore? A mom juggling nine currencies in five continents? WWII Vietnam? Or Phnom Penh during civil war? All look good and score at least 4.0 grading on GoodReads. War-related novels seem a bit intense right now. Goddard thriller I’ll save for Palm Springs. I think I’ll go for a working mom who has no free time on her own. Panicking at 1:37 A.M. to try faking a homemade pie for her daughter’s school party. How about that?
How do you find your next read? Rummage through your pile? Randomly pick something that first catches your attention? Buy something cold turkey? I have to have a book in my bag for morning coffee so buying something new is out of the question. Call me obsessive-compulsive. I am.
