The Library Book

So, I’m wanting work on a project that’s a little different from my normal work. I’m taking a bit of a break from To Be A Pawn and I really wanted to get away from the fantasy genre. However, with the current mood I’ve been in, it’s sometimes difficult to come up with ideas that don’t simply reflect how I feel right now.

I was reading a book that I got from the library yesterday, called Then We Came To The End, by Joshua Ferris. It’s quite unusual, and well written, but there isn’t really an overarching plot that I can see yet and so I’m finding it hard to get into. Anyway, I looked at the front of the book, where all the return dates were stamped.

It made me wonder who all these people were, the ones who had taken out this particular book before me? Where had this book been, what had it seen?

And, I’ll never know who these people were, but I guess it’s fun to imagine.

So, over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a short story for each date stamped in the book. I’m really looking forward to this project, and I hope you’ll stick around to see me complete it. 😀
