When my kids were young, we watched Beauty and the Beast about a gazillion times, over and over and over again. (Mulan was the second most watched Disney video) I mention this because I've always been a little bit like Belle, nose always in a book. A book goes with me everywhere, tucked on my person at all times. I've run into things because I'm walking and reading. Most people run into things texting; drives me nuts! Maybe I piss them off too?
About me and books...It's sort of how my love life always was...feast or famine. Either I have one and I won't do anything else unless I absolutely have to, I'm in search of one or I'm not interested in anything at all. I have a book fairy that I contact for my times of total desperation (this time for titles) and she's never failed me. She is the one who turned me on to Juliet by Anne Fortier *.
Today I'm infatuated with Romeo, and Juliet too, for that matter and next week I'll dump him and have someone or something new to consume my mind. It's like a revolving door for me, the people that come in and out of my life of a purely fictional nature. In reality, everyone else sticks around...friends, family, lover, etc. This is how I get my variety, I suppose.
I'm not one who's easily distracted but I do willingly dive head first into something if it's worthy. So far, some 250 pages into this book, it's definitely worthy.
* Guys, this is a historical fiction of sorts, and somewhat of a chick lit book. Read at your own risk because it's not a super manly version in my opinion! You will learn a lot about the premise of the story, the times, the city of Siena (one of my favorites)......
