What is up with all the reading?

Three Books Stacked Up

If you have been checking in on Walt In PA over the past couple of months, you probably noticed that I have been posting a lot of book related articles. While it isn’t something I did intentionally, it does seem to have become the default subject matter.

Back in June I picked up Wizards First Rule and was simply hooked from then on out. I’m finding that bits and pieces of my free time are being spent with my nose in a book rather than typing up something for my personal blog.

I’ve found reading to be a huge stress reliever (and in some books a stress maker) and a great way to unwind in the evening. While writing for my personal blog isn’t exactly stress free, I do enjoy it none the less.

I can’t promise that the trend of book topics will break anytime soon, but I do plan on trying a bit harder to work in other things. If you like the book content over the topics in the past, never fear, I’m going to try and keep going with my current one book per week system. If you preferred the older topics, keep an eye out as I’d like to begin to work more in between things.

  • Hi Walt,
    Just wanted to say that as I am sure I have already told you, I really enjoy your thoughts on the books you are reading. Apart from Women, cigars and booze,(yes in that order), reading has always been one of my favourite ways to escape the often harsh realities of life. I have lost many days, months and years in strange and distant worlds and always look forward to the next journey. What I am trying to say is that I hope you continue with your enjoyment of literature and giving us your book reports and if you want to also cover topics such as Women, cigars and booze…that is ok also. Take care.

  • I actually like it. I do agree with AW-AC in the order of things to help one relax. 😉 I recently finished reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and while the book was predictable, the concepts made me want to read more (He’s actually done research for his books on a regular basis). I’ve also taken to audio books to help with commutes and plane travel when trying to multi-task sometimes.

    I think I’ll have to look up some of the ones you’ve read on Paperbackswap.com and see if anyone has them.
