Today’s random question asks: Do you make a seasonal reading list? How do you choose what goes on it?
While there are certain books and certain types of books I enjoy reading during the various seasons of the year, I have to admit I don’t necessarily make a seasonal reading list.
But I do like to read certain things at certain times of the year. For the past several years, for example, I have enjoyed listened to a different audio version of A Christmas Carol. Each narrator brings something unique to the performance and it may lead me to see something about this familiar story in a new way.
I also enjoy a good scary story or two around Halloween.
Growing up, I checked out a record (yes, I’m old….) from the library that had Vincent Price reading stories by Edgar Allen Poe. One of them that was very memorable was a rendition of the Telltale Heart. Price’s voice was just perfect for the reading and telling of the story and it’s stuck with me. I don’t recall what other stories were on the record (I copied it onto cassette tape), but I’d love to hear some of them again.
