Posted to What Are You Reading?

Your post reminded me of what Virginia Woolf said about putting a good book down after reading for hours. She loved, she said, looking out the window and seeing the world as if for the first time...the mind is suffused with such a clarity and sharpness, as if one is in a beautiful dream. I think thats one of the magical aspects of reading...your mind has been exercising and afterwards the world seems to exude an exhilirating texture, even in observing something you'd usually consider mundane.
