You’re going to a used bookstore or charity book sale. Make sure you prepare. If you don’t, believe me, you’ll end up feeling overwhelmed and unsure.
I’m ashamed to admit it. But I was indeed, a book snob.
And even worse, I was a bored book snob. Some of those classics are hard to get through. Really hard. They aren’t all complex and lengthy, some of them are tedious, full of archaic language, and just plain long-winded.
I’ve realized I do this because what I love most about reading is that I get to experience someone else’s life and see the world from their perspective. I know that I’ve learned much from reading stories and books. I know that I’m a better person because of what I’ve read. I’m a kinder, more empathetic person because of what I’ve read.
