Selecting Books

I realized that, as an off and on writer, I have almost nothing to say about writing right now! I'm in one of those more so off-writing periods. However, I find that books seem to be a big part of my life right now. Not necessarily that I am reading a ton of them(I most certainly wish I was), but instead I am reading some really insightful ones, which amuses me.

Currently, my favorite is An Anatomy of Thought, The Origin and Machinery of the Mind, by Ian Glynn. Now, I am absolutely in love with this book, but I find that I can only read it whilst I am extremely relaxed. I just suck up more of it when I am.

The only reason that I find this to be so amusing is the fact that just a few years back I was still craving reading all of those vampire-related and teenage angst-seeming books -don't get me wrong, I'm a sucker for a good ol' vampy book still.- My tastes have just changed so much! Used to be, I would have seen "An Anatomy of--" and walked away. Now...I'll be the first one running to grab it before anyone can snatch it up first.

Well, that was just a little glimpse into the craziness that forms my thought processes. Namely because I'm trying to stay awake! Teehee.


  1. My reading choices change all of the time. I think it just goes with interests and maturity. I used to be an epic fantasy junky - with wars and a completely different world - but now I'm sucked into realistic fiction and occasionally, paranormal fiction. Really, it just changes over time.

    This book by Ian Glynn sounds like something that would be perfect for one of my projects (writing projects). I think I might have to look into it.

    Thanks for sharing.


    1. The way the mind turns and forms, and sometimes goes back on itself is just so utterly interesting! And the book is truly a piece of art, just not something I can find myself reading when there's any chance of interruption. It is simply too good to be interrupted!

      Within the first 15 pages, it has already taken you through a whirlwind of things to do with what the human mind actually is! Is it a machine? Do we even control it?

      It's a wonderful book that I just happened to come across, and I am in love with it! I think it could work well in a lot of ways whilst inspiring other books. Especially if you have an idea that delves into the brain itself.
