What I'm Reading Right Now #32
Quote of the day:
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway. -Kent M. Keith
The whole question of what to read often plagues me. Another question is when to read as I find often that timing is everything. It must be said though, that my reason for choosing authors is entirely up to how my present state and form is, coupled with varying factors. For example, I picked my book read for the previous week as it closely matched my needs.
You will understand the difficulty in choosing what to read when you have run out of books in your possession, and must then begin inspecting your reading list or those of others in order to be introduced to new authors. In the end, truth is, with old and new titles there can never be a lack of books to read...never.
My book read for the week is by Japanese author Kazuo Ishiguro and titled 'The Remains of the Day', a classic with Ishiguro managing to weave a brilliant and narrative story surrounding Stevens who is an ageing English butler, who sets out on a motoring tour through the countryside. The remains of the day is a compelling tale, touching on relationships, the dignity derived from work and life, of old traditions, and with undertones of politics, romance and sadness.
I would recommend this book if you are yet to read it. What books are you reading now, or plan to read during the remainder of the month?
Peace. Love, Light*
