Jon travels a bit for work and being the friendly guy he is he often strikes up conversation with people he sits next to on the plane. I love hearing about the different people he meets on his travels but this last time in particular was especially interesting to me.
Jon got to talking with the man sitting next to him on the plane. After a bit of talking Jon found out that the man next to him was a book agent. This man asked about what types of books Jon liked. At this point Jon mentioned that he really enjoyed reading but his enjoyment of reading was nothing compared to me. After explaining to the man how I will read anything I can get my hands on the man asked for Jon's card. He then told Jon that he would send a box of books for me to Jon's office.
How great is that?
Well sure enough, a week or two went by and a box of books arrived at Jon's office for me. It was like Christmas in a cardboard box! So far I have read The Dinner by Herman Koch (really good!) and Lost Kingdom by Julia Flynn Siler (a really interesting read about the history of the Hawaiian islands) and right now I am reading Healer by Carol Cassella which is a really great read so far.
What are you reading?
