not sure where this is headed

Recent discussions here on LJ about my reading habits caused me to start thinking. As a result, I developed a “survey”. Identifying the top six people I have the most real-life contact and social interaction, I then came up with a list of six authors whose work(s) I’ve read most recently. Sharing this list with my associates, I asked each of them if they recognized any of the names. Only one person replied that they “thought” a couple of the names were familiar and they accurately guessed that they might be writers but weren’t 100% sure. The other five had no idea.

Am I surprised? No. Disappointed? Well, yes. Why? I need to work that out. (Some of these folks from time to time have shared with me the books they have read/are reading and I usually recognize author/title/genre.)

Instead of another night out shooting pool (and tequila) with the gang while I’m in Atlanta on a business trip, I think I’ll stay in and read a book.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
