I want to read a book. Not just any book – a good book. I want to read a book that entrances me, that pulls me in, that teaches me, that moves me, that gives me a new perspective. I understand that I am asking quite a bit of a book. There have been only a couple of books that have touched me in this way, but it has been a long time and I really want to have that experience again.
Recently, I have read some books by authors that I have enjoyed in the recent past. They have all been merely entertainment – easy reads that keep me occupied for a time. There have been other books I have read, but they all revolve around child-rearing or finances. They have all been informational and helpful, but they were more like homework.
So begins my quest for a book. The book. I don’t know where to start, but I think a morning at the library and an afternoon at the bookstore might be in order.
