I grew up reading newspapers. I loved opening a freshly delivered daily paper, it was like opening a birthday or Christmas present. The sense of expectation though for a newspaper was that every page held a surprise or a mystery either solved or insinuated.

    As a youngster fifty years ago I delivered the Kingston Whig Standard in my small home town of Wilton, Ontario. Thirty-four newspapers delivered over a three to four mile route. Walking in the winter and riding my bike the other three seasons. All for two cents a paper.

What is Kim Thompson Currently Reading? thumbnail

I have stacks of books around the house at any given time, and read them according to what's imminently due back at the library.

Currently:

How Music Works, by David Byrne - as big as a textbook, but fascinating. It's so dense it has taken me a while to get through it, but I mean dense in a good way...  it's the kind of book you keep setting down to think about what you've just read. Both wide-ranging and personal, and fascinating even if you aren't a massive Talking Heads fan like me.
