I’ve always loved reading. Ever since I was a child and my Mother taught me to read. As a child I read everything I could get my hands on. I read a lot of classic novels like Treasure Island, The Three Musketeers, the Hound Of The Baskervilles. I mixed those novels in with what eventually overtook my reading passion: comic books. I’ve been into comic books ever since my Father first introduced me to them when I was 5 back in 1989.
Comic books have been a passion as well. The art and words have always drawn me in. Especially with how favorite characters change when different artists are brought on.
I never stopped reading books, but I slowed up. I used to read 2 or 3 books every couple of weeks. Then it became a book once or twice a year. That’s how badly I slowed up.
Right after I graduated in December of 2007, I found myself out of school, unemployed, and with a lot of time on my hands. I began reading little by little, and even when I got a meager job I actually started to read more since I worked mostly evenings, and I was out for most of the night and mornings. I started with Stephen King’s The Mist, then an H.P. Lovecraft collection that included the brilliant At The Mountains Of Madness, and I just picked up from there.
Even though I hadn’t been reading often, didn’t mean that I stopped buying books. I love hitting up bookstores to see what I can find. I had such a backlog of books, that it was a pile. I’ve just started reading books I’ve had since around 2003. I’m pretty proud of myself in that in the past two weeks I’ve read the Halloween II, and Halloween III: Season Of The Witch novelizations that I’ve had for a long time. I figured it was about time to read them, and it being close to Halloween really goes with the theme. I even have the Halloween IV novelization and I just started on that one. I’ve got plenty more waiting for me, and even some that I’ve ordered.
I’m very happy that I’ve gotten back in tune with reading. I fell into a lapse, and now I’ve been reinvigorated.
Rene’s song of the day: “The Verdict” (Dopo La Condanna) by Ennio Morricone.
Thanks for reading my blog and see you next time!
When filming “I Love Lucy” producers used tactics to make Ethel, Lucy’s foil, uglier on screen than she was in real life. This was done to put the focus on Lucy. A similar tactic seems to have been used in 2020’s Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, by not giving any of the supporting actresses … Continue reading — By Sushi-X
