The Existence of Pity
What do you do when you finish a book?
I just read this one.
You’ve finished it from cover to cover, two hundred pages or so. Your mug is empty, your chocolate wrapper sprinkled with the remaining few crumbs & you feel suddenly … alone, empty
As if you had a wonderful dream that is only now fading & leaving you with the faintest of memories.
Of course, if you hated the book you would probably be glad to throw the book down & wiggle your cramped spine.
I think the best kind of books are those you want to share with somebody. You want to say I’ve read this amazing book & I think you might like it too.
Buy me a Coffee!
