Every now and then something goes through my feed like nits through a primary school. It will be “Post a book cover every day for seven days” or “post a black and white picture every day for seven days” or “post your top ten albums every day”. And they usually finish with “No comment necessary.”
Rubbish. The most important part of posting a list like that is the reasons why they are your favourites. The stories behind the albums and the books are almost more important than the books themselves. My lists would change from week to week, if not day to day, so the stories are even more important in those circumstances.
To that end, I’m going to post a couple of these here. I’ve already posted them on Facebook, day by day as requested, with huge stories attached, completely breaking the rules.
I hope you get something out of the stories. Otherwise, I hope you just go out and read the books, listen to the music, eat the foods, whatever I end up posting.
