Why can’t we read anymore?

Read this… if you can still read more than a couple of paragraphs! ;-)

Why can’t we read anymore?

The reasons for that low number are, I guess, the same as your reasons for reading fewer books than you think you should have read last year: I’ve been finding it harder and harder to concentrate on words, sentences, paragraphs. Let alone chapters. Chapters often have page after page of paragraphs. It just seems such an awful lot of words to concentrate on, on their own, without something else happening. And once you’ve finished one chapter, you have to get through another one. And usually a whole bunch more, before you can say finished, and get to the next. The next book. The next thing. The next possibility. Next next next.

P.S. Last two books that I read in paperback, are Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. Now waiting for part #3… :)

Joe Cocker…

…is gone. (Un)forgiven.

His last album, “Hard Knocks,” was pretty good, and there were quite a few good songs in it — at almost 70, his voice was still amazing.

(But, of course, Joe will be mostly remembered by his hits “You’re So Beautiful…” and “Unchain My Heart“.:-)

R.I.P., Joe! You passed through some rough times, but brought to us so much warmth with your music! Thank you!
