At the moment, I'm reading a fascinating book about birds:'The Wonder of Birds: What They Tell Us About Ourselves, the World, and a Better Future' by Jim Robbins. Might even get a lyric or two out of this one.
Prior to that, I'd been binging on a few of Stephen King's books. His writing has sure improved over the last several years. (Either that or he has a better editor.) In any case, he's one darn good storyteller, and creates wonderful characters. When I've finished the bird book, I'll be jumping back to King. Plan to re-read 'The Stand', among others.
Any books you can recommend? Reading anything you feel might inspire a lyric or a song?
