I’m not sure what most people make of my dirty habit. In fact, I’m gonna go out on a limb here (Funny, but it seems that I have a tendency to go out on a limb doesn’t it?) and say that most people are completely unaware that I read. A lot. Since I’ve been in Hawaii, I’ve read six books. I personally think I’ve done a pretty good job of managing my time since I’ve procured a mailbox, gotten a new bank account, found a suitable place to live, gone to the beach more than a few times, gone hiking above Wailuku, helped a friend scout possible investment properties, and managed to submit thirty 250-word articles and two 750-word articles to my publisher. AND still managed to read (and more importantly retain and understand) six books.
Well, I just finished Stephen King’s Song of Susannah, one of the Dark Tower books… my seventh book in one month. If you’ve never had the opportunity (or motivation) to read one of Stephen King’s Dark Tower books, you really should. They are unlike anything else he has written. These books are influenced by so many of my favorite things in the whole of creation.
If you decide to take the plunge, begin with The Gunslinger which is the first book in the series. And if you do decide to take the plunge, get the hardback editions as they are illustrated and can definitely help you visualize the characters and other objects in this epic adventure.
