What Are You Reading?

I love to read!

Mainly True Crime, Serial Killer stuff but also a few novels, fiction like The Flowers In The Attic series, Survivor Stories and stories that explain how people think or tick.

I borrowed a book from my neighbor, titled ‘The Sociopath Next Door’…and yes, she lives next door! But, I digress . .. The scary thing about this book is; I see a lot of Sociopathic traits in my friend, Tra. Tra says terrible things about people! Example, she put on Facebook that she wishes she had aborted her daughter because her daughter accused her of being a racist, and a few other things. She Hates her sister and says she is dead to her; even laughing when bad things happen to her, She also Hates her neighbor as well as her not yet Ex-Husband and wishes them both dead. She believes if she Hates someone, you should too, or at least have nothing to do with them, and you can’t disagree with her much or you will hear her wrath. She also puts a lot of Whoa is me, my life sucks and no one likes me posts on Facebook which is a major sign of a Sociopath. They play into pity. She is one of those people who puts her whole life on Facebook, which, I personally, find ridiculous.

While the book does recommend staying away from people like that, I believe it is also good to just stay aware.

Tra and I do not get together to often and when we do, I pretty much just listen without taking sides.

So, back to the title and question:

What are you reading? And
Is it affecting your life?

  1. I must admit that the only things I read these days are contracts, newspapers, Covid announcements from the government and all things related to work. I have not read any mystery nor romance nor fictional books! Sigh! Perhaps one day I can have the luxury to lull on my sofa and just read what I like. I envy you and keep enjoying your novels!

  2. I’m reading a not very famous italian writer, Elsa Morante, Arturo’s Island. A wonderful classic that teaches and talks about a life in solitude. An Arturo protagonist in his narrating self, an Arturo who becomes a star among his animals and a star will also become for the reader who will not easily forget him. Arturo orphan of his mother, grows up with an absent and practically misogynistic father. Arturo tries to grow and while he tells the story his maturity reaches the reader, because even when he is a child, the young man already has to do it himself when he is a child. Elsa Morante, immense and poetic, calls him a forastic Arturo several times and it is precisely the idea and flavor that this reading emanates.
