Reads from Ridley
A few days ago, I read an interview given by one of my favorite authors, Ridley Pearson. In it, the interviewer posed the question:
What is the one book you feel everyone should read?
Wow, what a question! Ridley’s answer? “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.
I tried and tried to think of one that would beat out “Mockingbird” as my #1 choice, but so far, I can’t come up with anything better.
However, I’d not even rank Lee’s only novel as one of my fav top 10. Not even top 20. Don’t get me wrong, I love this book-but if I were limited to 10 books to read repeatedly for the rest of my life, it wouldn’t be in the selection.
Yet, if there was a required book for all Americans? Yeah, still, I can’t come up with something better. Any ideas? I’d love to hear them!
Speaking of reading, I have finally, finally learned how to use the library search system to select my books. Thus, I’ve been going down my extensive list, only to find that the majority of books aren’t available on tape. It’s one of the infuriating things about being blind-the limited selection of books.
This isn’t to say there aren’t plenty. There are. But I read some weird stuff. And just to know that these books are not all available as they are to the greater population is rather annoying. Yet, since I’ll never, ever be able to read every book I’d like to, I’m finding this a bit of a mixed blessing. Still, if you have suggestions, I’m always looking for new titles to check out! Send ’em my way if you have something you think may be of interest!
