I read because each reading has the ability to shift the angle of my worldview, and this is in turn feeds the will, the desire to live. This is my crack and as a result I am a ravenous and indiscriminate reader.
I found Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt yesterday. Which is just as well, because it's pissing down today and the book would be no more had I or someone else not come across it.
Now it is here, looking at me. It boasts a Pulitzer, but I am not taken in yet. I will wait.
