I love when I can remember where I read a book. I’ll never forget where I sat in my house when I finished RJ Palacio’s Wonder, and I’ll always remember sitting in fourth grade when my teacher read the class Hatchet.
I will always associate Aaron Starmer’s The Riverman with my trip to the 2014 Rose Bowl. Aaron’s book is a book that you want to talk about with someone that has read it. You want to know what they thought, and you want to bounce ideas of of them as you read.
Not having someone to talk to about The Riverman turned out to be a blessing. There is something wonderful about reading a book that you: have heard nothing about, that you know nothing about, and that you have nobody to talk to about it. It is a different type of reading. A type of reading that I don’t get to do to much of anymore.
If you haven’t read The Riverman, I highly recommend you check it out. I wouldn’t be surprised if you always remember where you were when you read it. I’m sorry for not telling you more about what happened in the book. I’d hate to be the reason you miss out on the experience that I had when reading The Riverman.
