Once upon a childhood "summer" meant countless hours to lay out in the backyard reading, to stay up late reading, to bask on the beach reading. Fiction, mostly, as a child. "Literature" as a teen. Poetry and memoir in college. Since academia I've tried to balance genres by always having three or four books I'm reading. A typical stack would include poetry, something non-fiction, and a piece of well-written fiction.
These days I'm only reading non-fiction (and lots of board books). I miss fiction and poetry. I miss having a long list of books to read someday. So much has been lost this last year. The healing process is as bewildering as chemotherapy so I wonder if finding my next favorite novel or book of verse won't be part of it.
