- I am reading Fahrenheit 451. For the first time. And quite liking it. I’m not sure if I’m surprised by this. My sister loved Ray Bradbury as a kid (she always out-read me). She read Stephen King, Tolkien and Bradbury long before I did. I was stuck in Steinbeck, Faulkner and Twain.
This summer I’m reading a lot. A lot more than I have since school
What have you read recently that you’ve loved?
What have you read that you missed out on as a kid or teen?
What is a favorite book that I should read?
- I am gathering books for the Hopi Reservation. If you would like to donate, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These books must be gently used or new. I just looked up at my shelf and saw several novels I will never read again. It’s time to let those go. I have space only for the ones I want to keep forever. Or, maybe not space, but you know.
- In August, Ann Dee and Kyra and I might be having a writing marathon again. It’s been awhile. Will let you know as we get closer. If you are interested in playing a long, let me know.

A beautiful quote from Ray Bradbury on writing:
“You must write every single day of your life.
“You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next.
“You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads.
“I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime.
“I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you.
“May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories – science fiction or otherwise.
“Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
