There's nothing like fiction, telling the story how it happened or didn't happen or making one of your own up. One of favorite ways to hear a bit of fact or fiction from a book, magazine or newspaper is when someone reads it to me... so here's a 300 from the archives about reading a bit of fiction.

Do you like to read?

Read to me

Read to me. Of course I could read to myself. But it’s what I prefer. I prefer to listen while you read. You know how I love it when you do read aloud. I’m not sure what it is but there’s something about the way a man's voice sounds. And there’s so much passion behind your words when you say them. Besides, I’d love to hear what you’ve been immersed in. If you won’t read it to me then tell me a little about this book. This book that captures your attention while we sit here and say nothing. Oh I see. Is it interesting? Yes, I have read it before. But I’m asking what you think. I want to know what the story is like through your eyes. How does it make you feel? Tell me… are you enjoying it? No, Honey. Shh. Not like that. Please stop. Just… That’s not the point. Keep reading the book. I don’t want to read it again. Although the idea of listening to you read it aloud sounds much better. Please, will you read it to me? The sound of your voice calms me. And it’s such a lovely story. Speak and let your lovely voice carry the words to my ears. And you can make yourself comfortable. Like? Well, you could lay your head on me and kick up your feet on the edge of the chair. Then I’ll rub your neck while you tell me the story. Why? So you can relax while you’re reading. Don’t you want to? I can see that you do. How? Lower the book. Now look me in the eye and tell me otherwise. See, you can’t. Darling, come on. You know you want to give in. Tell me a story. Please. Read to me?
