PUB CHAT: Read like Jagger on Mother's Day

3 1 0

Other than the facts that our given first name is Michael and we both grew up being called by the nickname Mick, I never really thought I had much in common with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger (oh wait, my friend Diane Kitchen up in Lyons loves both of us too, so there’s that!)

However, I read something earlier this week that made me rub my chin and go, “Hmmmmm. We’re more alike than I thought … ”

The key word in that sentence being “read.”

The King of Swivel Hips and Big Lips, Mick is an avid reader, and when he’s not rockin’ and rollin’ he usually can be found readin’ — and, often, two books at a time. That’s because he can’t get no satisfaction (sorry, but I couldn’t resist) reading just one.

In the article, the 78-year-old Jagger was quoted as saying, “I try to read one fiction book at the same time as a non-fiction book. Sometimes it’s hard to find a book that holds your attention.”

In other words, you can’t always get what you want (sorry again!) but he is a man after my own heart, and I go even further than Mick by usually having four or five books going at once, generally a mix of fiction and non-fiction. I know, I know, but I can’t help it. My wife teases........
