The Beauty of Reading

No two persons ever read the same book.

–Edmund Wilson

I love the way readers make novels their own. I notice it most in reviews of my books.  Invariably, a reviewer will decide a novel is about something I never intended. It is, for that person.

Final Thoughts from Janalyn

Author Janalyn VoigtThe beauty of a story is that it lives and breathes with each reader.  A little imagination and maybe a sprinkle of pixie dust, is all it takes.

Thanks for reading! I’ll leave you with a poem in keeping with this month’s Literary Wayfarer offering. 

The Road Not Taken

by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
 
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
 
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
