Now Or Then? June 17, 2010
Do you prefer reading current books? Or older ones? Or outright old ones? (As in, yes, there’s a difference between a book from 10 years ago and, say, Charles Dickens or Plato.)
What do I prefer? When it comes to reading, there are current books, I like to read. I don't always get them read when they are current. However, they are on my bookshelf waiting to be read. So as time goes by, I guess you could say they become older books, 1-5 years old, no longer being current. But, they do get read in time.
I have some Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, and a C.S. Forester book to be read. so I guess they would fall under 'outright old books' to be read. But I have to be in an 'outright old book' frame of mind, before I read them. For some reason I like reading them in the winter time.
So, I guess, now that I have thought about it, I prefer..... more current books to read.
