on what i’m reading

2014, Culture, Inspiration, June

i’ve started reading again and it’s oh-so-glorious. i had forgotten just how delicious words are and how much devouring them feeds my aching soul.

{and it’s only aching because i’ve. needed. to. read.}

and now that i’m feeding this hunger, this need to escape in words; i am beginning to feel satisfied.

or shall i say my soul is.

not the undo-your-trouser-button-because-you’ve-eaten-too-much satisfied. no.

i mean the THAT-was-the-best-meal-i’ve-ever-had-and-to-over-eat-would-be-to-ruin-the-experience kind of satisfied.

the savor-every-mouthful satisfied.

i don’t know why i’m resorting to food analogies to describe my recent reading experience but now you know my obsession with books.

and food

the rosie project is brilliant. funny. heartwarming. delicious {we should use that word more often}. chuckle-quite-loudly-to-yourself-on-the-train kind of hilarious actually.

a dazzling read. it’s going on my favourites list.

**UPDATE**
i guess i should talk about the content of the book right? don is the main character and i fell in love with him from page 2. maybe even page 1. watching his life from his perspective as he looks for a wife *the wife project*{he’s 39 and lives his life by schedules and systems}, his relationship with rosie {who is totally unsuitable and turns his systematic life upside down}…it’s both fascinating and brilliant, i guess that’s what makes me {and maybe you} root for him from page 2 {or page 1}.

i used a lot of {these} in that utterly poor description. here go to amazon. i tried. articulating words into coherent sentences is not my strong point today. or this week really.
