Naming a library in Trump's name has such potential, though. It could be America's version of all the Nazi remembrance stuff they have in Berlin. Use it as a memorial so the people will never forget the horrors of his presidency (the sad thing is that this idea is totally valid even if Trump gets impeached in a few months).
I find my reading can fluctuate pretty wildly. I read very little last year, think I only read two books, because my mental health was tanking terribly, but now that I'm getting better reading just sort of comes back to me naturally.
I never could use books to escape, or films, video games or tv-shows either. I can distract myself for periods of time with all of these media except books. Books are a special kind of stimuli and to me they are special on their own, being surrounded by books I've read and like and just holding a book that matters to me gives me a kind of comfort that I've never really understood, but I think it's because reading books was the first time I was able to feel companionship, it used to be the only thing that could stymie loneliness.
And I have to ask Carolyn, what are you reading atm?
