Here is my belated post for Simon T’s meme – A Picture Paints a Thousand Books. The idea is simply that you find a picture that you think reflects your reading tastes, and here is mine:
My Dad used to have a picture up by Wassily Kandinsky in our house when I was little and I couldn’t help but think of his paintings with their wonderful jumble of colours when I was trying to find an image.
My reading taste is very diverse so this is why I have chosen this image for it’s colourful patchwork effect. Alongside the colour in this image there are also black lines and marks, which represent how I tend to find writing that has a bit of a dark undertone intrigues me. My reading is dominated by fiction so this is why I have chosen a picture that isn’t realist and the picture is very expressive just as I enjoy writing that is passionate and emotionally powerful. Also, in many ways this image it is quite puzzling, and I do like books that make you think!
What image would you pick to represent your reading tastes?
