One good thing about my children reaching adulthood is that they introduce me to new music, art and literature. Some is just beyond my brain being able to comprehend or cope with but there is also a lot that I embrace. My son David lent me all three books of 1Q84 to read at Christmas, and I just finished reading it. I'm not a slow reader by any means, it is just a lot of reading. It is something I probably wouldn't have even picked up if I came across it in a bookstore or library and I am so glad he passed it on to me. I'm not going to tell you what it is about, you can go HERE to find that out, but I do recommend it.
I have gone through the box of books my daughter left here and pulled a few out to look at, once again books I wouldn't normally pick up, but who knows I might just find a gem in these as well??
