Here’s what I love about the world of books ~ how reading connects us so surprisingly. And so today, at lunch on a quiet Friday in my office, as I’m sitting in our little lunchroom reading Too Much Happiness, Alice Munroe’s latest collection of short stories, my boss happens to walk by.
“I just started that,” she said, this business owner, this nurse, this woman who pulls no punches with clients who are brain injured, drug addicted, paralyzed. “Have you read Child’s Play yet? It will chill you to the bone…”
And so we paused in the midst of a regular work day and lost ourselves for a moment in a shared affinity for Alice Munroe, and short stories, and books in general. For a moment, my world’s conveged, spinning on a bookish axis.
