Musing Mondays (Apr.15)
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
I am currently reading Seth Godin’s “The Icarus Deception“. It’s about art, and connectedness. And, I’m enjoying it.
Though, I do feel that some bits are going over my head a little. He is trying to convince the reader that “art” isn’t painting or sculpture, or music, or whatever we’ve normally seen art as being. He is saying that it’s more an attitude, and that is something I can’t fully wrap my head around. While I agree with him in some things, I can’t believe that art is not “painting and sculpture, music, etc”. I think it’s both all of that and an attitude.
He also talks a lot about how we’ve moved into an age of “connection”, where we are building relationships, and those relationships are what are driving business and such. This I wholeheartedly agree with, and it’s really resonating with me. I am loving these bits!
Overall, it’s a good book, and there’s lots to think about inside!
