What Are You Reading?Posted Tuesday, September 25, 2012, at 7:39 PM
A (very bad) photo found on Facebook.
Here are some of the books our friends and neighbors have been reading this week:
In One Person by John Irving
Clapton, the Autobiography by Eric Clapton
Brother Lawrence, Baker Publishing Group
Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
The 20 books listed here, and the 20 readers who dipped into them, represent a small percentage of the readers in our area, in our region, and in the wide, wide world beyond. We should all feel good about how many of us still depend on the printed word to learn, to be inspired, and to affirm our curiosity about the world around us.
What are you reading?
Ubiquitous is a word that means "everywhere." We all know that there are lots of pigs in the world. Some good pigs like Wilbur in Charlotte's Web...and some bad pigs too, like the pigs in Orwell's Animal Farm. I have a picture of a beautiful Yorkshire hog diving off a board into a pretty county pond. The pig is smiling. He is a good pig. Good pigs are everywhere. Happy, friendly, useful pigs. And then there are the bad pigs. Remember when you mother admonished you? "Don't be a pig!" she'd command. She was telling you not to be selfish, and to think of other people. Your mom (and my mom) hoped that we would consider the feelings and rights of other people. This blog is about good things and bad things: good and bad things happening in Carroll County, good and bad books, good and bad food. Thanks for taking a look.
