Read, right?

I've always read more than one book at a time. Right now is no different. I have 4 books in the roster. Interestingly enough reading these books over and over again ingrained some of these stories characters, some real, some fiction, in my mind as my muse. As I begin my new series of paintings I've decided to take a moment to list a few these books that I'm currently reading, or have recently finished. All of these stories are floating around my mind and many of their characters are now finding a home in the many pages of some of my sketchbooks.
