The Latest from SLIC
As a lover of books and an inveterate reader, as I presume you to be since you are reading this blog, I imagine that one of the great pleasures in life for you, as it is for me, is discovering a new author, one whose books you find exciting to read. Your discoveries may be different from mine, but I bet the thrill of the find is similar for us both.
I am always looking for the next book to read. When I finish one there follows a period of time where I cast around searching for the next one. Sometimes I end up going back to a book I read years ago, or to one on a topic that currently intrigues me. I often look for a new book by an author I enjoyed reading in the past, but nothing tops the pleasure of discovering a book by an author I do not know whose book surprises and pleases me in ways I do not expect. Some books give more pleasure than others, some are more memorable, more likely to be read a second or third time. These are the books I seek.
