Daily Prompt: Reading Material

I read pretty much everything I can get my hands on.  Some of it interests me while others may bore me to tears.  I find reading to be educational and fulfilling; most of what I do read is intellectually stimulating, whether it is trashy romance or literary classics.  As a writer, I have no choice but to read.  How else would I be able to convey the chaotic mess that swirls inside my tiny mind?

Currently, at the top of my reading list are cookbooks.

I have an intense thirst for knowledge and a strong desire to eat.  I also enjoy perusing historical truth; I just finished Nonna Bannister’s The Secret Holocaust Diaries.  When I was a teen, I was introduced to a time unlike the past but similar to the present:  World War II and the Holocaust.  Thank you, Mrs. Barbara Demlow.  Since then, I have been utterly fascinated by this time period.  I am most excited about my upcoming trip to Washington, D.C., where I will have the opportunity to spend some time at the National Holocaust Museum, provided the government gets off its proverbial tush and goes back to work. (They better before I get there!  I have been planning this whole trip around that museum!)

Come over to my house.  At any given time I will have at least two books in a “currently reading” status.  I have a NOOK, an iPad, and a library card.  Which one will I be reading?  The one that strikes my mood.  I can guarantee that one will be thought-provoking while the other will allow me to escape the realities of life.
