If you look in a dictionary it will say that reading is ” to look at and comprehend the meaning of (written or printed matter) by interpreting the characters or symbols of which it is composed.” It might also say that reading is “to discover information in a written or printed source”
But I know a different definition. If you could ask my late Aunt Sally for the definition of reading, it would be ” to read more books than you in the next 12 months niece!”
Every year, we had a reading contest. We would list everything we had read. We would review them to each other on a scale of excellent, not bad, don’t even think about it! You get the drift!
Could I beat her? I don’t think I ever came close. I used to joke that she took a book everywhere with her. Im sure she had one stood up at the sink when she was washing up!
So, with the inspiration of Sally behind me, I have decided to start a Reading List section for Madhatterpress. Ill document some of 2021s for you and then next year, I will aim to do all of them and review them for you. Please remember I said…”aim”….
