Humans have a long history with stories. And it’s the stories that mean the most, that last the longest. I don’t mean those with a moral (although fables are always popular). I mean stories that people really care about.
And there’s growing theories to suggest that it’s actually these cares that begin to shape stories. A kind of natural selection for the novel.
But there’s a lot that a book can tell about a person. Take genre as a starting point. As well as giving an insight into their interests, it can reveal a lot about character. For example, someone who reads horror is usually pretty good at dealing with a crisis.

This summer, I’ll be performing my one-man show, MIND WHAT YOU READ, at the Phoenix Artist Club as part of the Camden Fringe. It’s on on the 29th, the 30th and the 31st July, at 9pm and for £9.
I’d love to see you there. There’s a link below to put the show in your calendars and buy your tickets.
I’ll leave you with a gift. Well, until the end of the week. Comment below and tell me what your favourite book is, and I’ll tell you what it says about you.
MIND WHAT YOU READ will be at the Phoenix Artist Club at 9pm between Tuesday 29th and Thursday 31st July 2014. Book your tickets here.
