Winding Words is my place to talk about the books I read. On this site, you will find book reviews, thoughts on books, and lists of books. They will be running throughout the site just as small brook or river runs.
As a fly fisherman, I can get lost just standing in a rill, a running stream, creek, or river. I stretch my arm and hope for the perfect cast. Then I wait as my fly moves with the current. At that point, my waders might fill up and my line tangle, but I would be oblivious, just enjoying God’s creation there on the river.
That’s how I read most books. I’m lost in them, distracted by the words flowing around me. I cheer and jeer the characters, hoping for good outcomes.
After fishing, I carefully find my way back to the bank, paying attention to the rocks and the vegetation. I pack up my gear and head home where I dream of another day filled with those rills, streams, creeks, and rivers.
After finishing a book, I let the words flow around in my mind, write down my thoughts and bring them here to Winding Words. Then I pick up the next book hoping for more distractions, more inspiration, more stretching of my mind.
I review books here on Winding Words, Goodreads and for NetGalley. I also post those reviews on Twitter, Facebook, Amazon and Kobe.
A note to authors: I would be happy to review your new books and host you on blog tours. Contact me via email or Twitter.
Thanks for stopping by.
