I won’t delve into the full background, but the motivation for posting about the books I read on the internet is in large part medical. I’ve played contact sports for years and took a blow to the head. My eyes have been tested and are perfectly fine on most tests. My brain, however, does not process the visual information my eyes provide it as it should and as a result the world often appears heavily distorted. Like an old cartoon where things appear in snippets. It is horribly uncomfortable. A neuro-opthamologist prescribed only one thing: reading.
In an attempt to follow Doctor’s orders I’m setting about reading and reading, for me, all the time. As with all programs, it is only a success if you do it. This blog is an attempt to hold myself accountable.
I don’t imagine anyone will read this, but if so please feel free to provide a comment or recommendation. I mainly read non-fiction, but lately have been venturing more towards fiction and non-fiction that is more oriented towards ideas, less so histories that consist of people and dates listed in chronological order. I have a hard time wading through fiction, so suggestions are welcomed!
I’m an early thirties Canadian male. If it matters.
