Why? well, not the same reason as Prisco:
Frankly, because we’re both disgusted by people who say, “I don’t read.” You are buffoons, who should be taken out back of a woodshed and brutally mauled by a sexually frustrated simpleton armed with leather tanning equipment. Everyone should find time to read a book. Just once or twice a year even. There are lots of them. Some of them are even good.
Ouch. I don’t want anyone to be brutally mauled, but I do agree there are good books out there. I’m doing it because I remember loving to read for years, and then having that love pummeled out of me my school - especially stupid law books. So, I am going to read for pleasure.
First up, John McCain’s Faith of My Fathers and Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father. Both are selections for the book discussion here in this quiet mountain village next week. Next up, probably a lot of Jeeves and Wooster.
The gauntlet has been thrown. Will any of you take the challenge?
