Reading Fever

Reading Fever

I read about 75 books every year. Reading is an addiction for me. I am in a monthly book club at our public library. Over the last few summers I’ve been reading books on the Time 100 Greatest Novels. I read memoirs, biographies (particularly Presidential biographies), best sellers, fiction, non-fiction. You name it, I read it.

People like me are lucky to be living in 2017. During the 1700s, when novels first became readily available, many prominent pundits were concerned that people were reading too much. They were especially concerned about young women. They dubbed this ailment “reading rage,” “reading fever,” “reading mania,” or “reading lust.” Oh my. Please tell me there’s no cure.
