Wow, how i LOVE Karl Lagerfeld’s library!
Do you know, i have never ever met a Virgo who was not a voracious reader and super-erudite.
I am not saying that other signs are not but Virgos specialize in it.
Not-The-Typical-Virgo is always sadly stunned when she is reminded that i have not read that year’s Booker Prize winner. She reads them all, because one must.
One of her other friends is married to a Greek Virgo barman – he’s in Athens and he has no ambitions other than to read. He works at the bar and the rest of the time reads at every available opportunity. Due to his enormous consumption of a massive range of literature, he can converse enthusiastically with practically anyone in the world and on more or less any subject.
Does this fit your experience of Virgos? Or do you think it more characteristic of another sign? Geminis read heaps too but i don’t think their attention span is so strong as our Virgo. And a Gemini will fling the book across the room at the first hint of tedium or repetition but most Virgos will plough through to the end, no?
And is it a good or a hideous thing to have a list of must-read books, such as that year’s prizewinners?
While we are here: Kindle and all that – yes or no? And do you think there is one person whose only task in the world is to dust and maintain K.L’s books? I think there is.
