By the way, happy first day of October. Now, moving on to more important topics at hand.
I like metaphors. Is that weird? Probably, but I don’t care. Recently, for school, I read Of Mice and Men. Steinbeck is a great writer, and he pays such close attention to detail, it is incredible. And I have to say, the book was so meaningful, it blew my mind, like how little bitty lines meant so much… or tiny connections between two events which ultimately made the book what it is.
Books like Of Mice and Men make me very happy. I actually learn something from them, and the writing is so in depth that it’s fun trying to figure out what the author is really trying to say. I don’t come across books like this often enough, even though I look for them everywhere I go. Meaning is everywhere in the world, and authors are everywhere. All of us are authors. We all write our own lives, making our own decisions. And really, I think ultimately, reading helps us learn. About each other, ourselves, the world, and many other things. (Wow that got deep real fast).
Some of my other favorite books include (but are not limited to):
