Sobre mim

Sobre a minha bibliotecaIt certainly has been a challenge to list and log all my books past and present. Nevertheless, I believe I am getting there. It has been a daunting chore at times to go through my seven huge bookcases to try to find the books I want to list. Many of them won’t be listed because I do not have the patience to go through them all. Some have been sold or given away; a few were library books, much is packed away in the attic and others will be lost in my gray matter forever because I cannot recall all the books I have read; unless I happen upon a book in someone else's library or a topic, I have read about comes into conversation. Only then do I seem to remember a book and list it.

As anyone can see I have a diverse interest in reading material. However, subjects pertaining to the darker side of life seem to dominate my library. I learned early in life things that you fear are best confronted than to suffer the fear of the unknown. I guess you could say I am on a quest to conquer those bogey men who sleep under our beds at night. I believe knowledge helps to dispel most fears I have.

Many of my family and friends have always expressed some surprise in my reading material – especially things pertaining to war, violence and death. I don't come across as one who would read books pertaining to holocausts, wars, murder and horror, (at least that is what I have been told), and sometimes I do prefer the classic romance; an erotic novel or other “womanly” things such as fashion, leisure, travel, the arts, self-help and social topics. Being an artist, I am curious to see what’s under all that fluff we call normal. I have an insatiable curiosity of life as well as death and the unknown.

Distrust a course in reading. People who really care for books read all of them.

~Andrew Lang

1.) The more you read, the better you get at it; the better you get at it, the more you like it;
and the more you like it, the more you do it. 2.) And the more you read, the more you know;
and the more you know, the smarter you grow.

~Author, Jim Trelease
