OK, that’s it! I am going to employ a large man to take a bat to my head! I’m hoping for full blown amnesia here.
Let me explain. I run a book group. I used to work in a bookshop and essentially books have been the biggest part of my life. But lately I’ve noticed something sad. It’s very rare that I pick up a book now and think I’m reading something new. Something that causes an intake of breath. Makes me want to climb into the book and walk with the characters.
So bring on the man with the bat. I can go back to when I learnt to read and have the first moments of real pure joy at reading.
