Honesty

The Scene: A son sits in a Laz-Boy next to his father who is watching the NBA Playoffs. The son’s first book is six months away from being published.

Son
(holds up book on natural hormonal balance): This your book?

Father
: Nope. I’m not much of a book guy.

Son
: When my book comes out will you read it?

Father
: Probably not all of it. Maybe a few parts.

End Scene

In the matter of full disclosure, I’m the son and my dad truly is NOT much of a book guy. The only book I know of that he’s read cover to cover is about a boy named Homer Price and his doughnut machine. If I caught him actually reading a book, I’m not sure what I would say or do – perhaps faint.

So yes, I’m okay with my own father not reading my book…as long as he buys a copy.

Audiobooks, perhaps?

Kelsey says:

Possibly an audio book about a boy named Homer Price and his doughnut machine. But I doubt it.

Secret Reader says:

I feel your pain.This is me giving you a cyber hug and I can’t wait until your book is out.

Lynne says:

That is what I would call a “Hallmark Moment.” So touching.
