Two years ago I pledged to read books only set in, connected to, or written by authors from the state of Florida. What followed was equal parts overwhelming, disorienting, and hallucinatory. That much Florida does a man no good.

If I were an addict, I would get high and while high, presumably, worry about where I was to get my next fix. Reading is not all that different, I think. As a reader, I am always looking over the binding thinking about the next read, in some instances, longing for it. Some books, like some highs, are better than others. But even with not-so-good books, I will come back to the drug, seeking the next high.
