What are you reading?
So you can apparently tell a lot about a person from the kind of books they like to read. According to studies, people who like biographies are different – personality-wise – from people who like fantasy and people who like historical fiction are different from people who enjoy romance. I wouldn’t know if that is actually true, but I do know you can tell my mood and state of mind from what I like to read at a specific moment in time.
My mother keeps carrying more Agatha Christie books into my room, so I never have a shortage of those. Every time it’s the same story: “You have to read this one. It’s better than all the others! The plot twists—” And the next one will also be better. That’s the nice thing about them. You have a 99% chance of being blown away every time.
A good book is the best of friends, the same to-day and for ever.
