Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
I promised Char that for my next book, I'd read Boy's Life - Robert R. McCammon, which she's been talking up for about as long as I've known her on BL. But, I'm going to have to break my promise. I'll be at the Rangers game tonight, hopefully to witness history as Adrian Beltre achieves the 3,000 career hit milestone. Plus, they're giving away a Roogie bobblehead to the first 15,000 fans, so we have to get to the ballpark as soon as the gates open, which means I have to pack a book. And I'm not hauling a hardcover around in my backpack in the Texas summer heat. So it's got to be a small paperback next - Carpe Jugulum (Discworld, #23) - Terry Pratchett. I'll get to Boy's Life next, I promise.
