What’s Everybody Reading?


These days there’s nothing wrong with a little escapism into literature to ignore the real world. I made an inquiry on my Facebook page asking what people were reading and was amazed at the response. I picked up several suggestions for my reading list and have already read; “Wrapped In Rainbows The Life of Zora Neale Hurston” by Valerie Boyd and “Down The River Under The Sea” by Walter Mosley as a result and have started “Barracoon” by Zora Neale Hurston. These were all a change of pace from my normal reading and I’m glad others lead me to these.


If you’re reading something fascinating or just finished a book you want to share? Make a comment and let the rest of us know what’s on your reading list? Be sure to include those guilty pleasures, we won’t judge! Try not to anyway.
