Looking for treasures


How do you pick what blogs or books to read? What’s the one thing that will get you to pick up a book or click on a link every single time?

I just learn Tom Clancy died. I used to read his books. Not lately, but I used to. I prefer the classics because they are a sure choice,  and positive stories because I’m depressed and I can’t stand sad and negative or worrisome stories. This is why I pick my readings by the author and by the excerpt of the story. When it’s about blogs also by the author, the subject, and the headline. When I find a book I really like I can read it several times. I don’t get tired of it. “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all,” said Oscar Wilde. I agree. I keep them like treasures. I’m also looking for books an readings about thoughts, and poetry. Readings that make me think deeply about life in a positive way.
