This introduces a series on reading. Among other things, I will share a picture of one of my favorite places to read. In no clear order, one of my favorite places is The New York Public Library in the very room you see before you. I have read there on various occasions. I still fondly recall the elderly woman taking copious notes from an art history book. Wonderful!
My own reading is summarized by the acrostic GROWTH.
G: Greats which right now is a reread of The Taming of the Shrew by Mr. Shakespeare. And I did not start reading Shakespeare until my early forties. There is hope for anyone!
R: Reviews I need to write or books for upcoming interviews. I have already read many terrific things for my show, “Moore Engaging,” and will be sharing those in the months ahead.
O: Other reading that doesn’t neatly fit in the five main categories. It is only as time permits which is rare! These kinds of books might find their way on vacation…which has also been rare these past several years.
W: Word of God. Commentaries and any book which helps me know the Bible better. And yes, I like to read commentaries cover to cover like real books.
T: Teaching preparation which can be just about anything.
H: History which I am regularly reading.
