Ah books… The wonderful, whimsical world of words. What would have happened to me if I hadn’t read my first novel, the first of the Harry Potter books, at age eight? If I wouldn’t have started going through my father’s extensive collection of books at a rapid pace? If I hadn’t read my first Sidney Sheldon at age ten (diabolical, no)? Would I be doing what I’m doing right now? Would I have been an extrovert if I hadn’t always had my nose buried in a book? These are questions that no one, not even the Sorting Hat or the well from Scherazade’s tales, can answer.
But why dwell on the past, when I have my whole future ahead of me to devour many more books? Unfortunately, it’s because I’m at a standstill. I have read books ranging from murder mysteries, to thrillers, to autobiographies, to amateur novels yet to be published! Now, I have absolutely no idea on what to read next. The latest Dan Brown, and old Fitzgerald, or one of the many inspirational works on Steve Jobs?
This is where I require the help of my fellow bloggers, who must be word worms, like myself. Attached is a short questionnaire that will help me tremendously to widen my literary horizons. Take a few minutes to help a fellow book worm?
