Imagine that everything is going just swimmingly. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and all’s right with the world. You’re practically bouncing from health and have money in your pocket. The kids are playing and laughing, the puppy is chewing in the cutest possible manner on an officially-sanctioned chew toy, and in between moments of laughter for pure joy, you pick up a book to read . . .
What is it?
Honestly? I usually will pick up whatever book I’m currently reading. Right now I’m reading two books–Travels with Charley and Howards End. I had some great news yesterday about a job offer, so I came home and read Travels with Charley–the more entertaining book of the two. I don’t think I really read for my moods, but I definitely don’t want to read something that is depressing (or boring like Howards End) if I am in a superhigh mood.
