I read very little adult literature. Partly that is because my job does demand that I have a deep knowledge about literature for children and young adults. I do dip into the adult world from time to tome. I read Stephen King. Recently, I read an adult book by my friend, David Gill. Both of these authors has appeal for teens; David has written a handful of novels for YA readers. I would rather immerse myself in THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH by Jenni Holm or a new picture book by Lois Ehlert than pick up some of the bestsellers for adult readers/ And i see I am not along any time I am on an airplane or sitting in a doctor's office. I know I am not alone.
As John Green notes: "It's not like we stop needing the comfort and help that a good story can bring when we graduate from high school. I am still looking for answers to questions about the meaning of life. I am still trying to fathom the wondrous strangeness of love. I am still trying to make my way through life despite heartache and loss."
