A Bookish Choice

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/a-bookish-choice/

A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?

I love to read. And the older I get the more I enjoy it! Reading for pleasure has become my go-to thing. Sometimes, I can place myself right in the middle of the story, and other times, I am just a bystander enjoying what I am reading. I do believe that reading keeps the mind alert, no matter what the genre.

Now…as to this literary-minded witch.  If I were to author a novel, I would want something popular to which millions enjoyed. There is no greater pleasure than knowing how much others are enjoying something that I’ve done.

As for the obscure novelist with admired work, that would not sit well with me. I’d rather bring a bit of happiness and sunshine to many!
