Reading a Good Book

What was the last good book you read?

There is nothing like a good book
on a cold winter's night
when the wind is howling,
the snow is blowing,
the electricity is out,
forcing you to read the book
by candle light.

What was the last good book I read? This is a difficult question because all the books I read are good. The books I read are the Baha'i scriptures, poetry, science fiction, and fantasy. Books I have been known to read in the past (and may read again sometime in the future) are self-help and doctoral dissertations. Right now, I'm in the process of deciding what book I want to read, so I'm reading a compilation of Baha'i scriptures that I can meditate on in the evening and the morning. Downsizing and moving has put crimp in my offline reading and yesterday it stalled my online reading entirely and writing entirely, so as a result, today I'm attempting to catch up on blog entries and work in the house.

There is nothing like a good book
on a wet spring night
when a gentle rain is falling
hazing all the streetlights.

When I was a teenager, I read romance novels. They weren't the hot and heavy popular romance novels of today, but they were of that genre. I found them interesting up to a point; however, once I discover H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe I lost interest in the romance novels. Today, the only romance novels I care for are in the science fiction, fantasy, or horror genres. All though, from some of the popular romance novel I've seen and glanced at those can be consider fantasy as well; at least, compared to the romance I've encounter throughout my life.
