I’m reading a lot these days. I’m thankful this sabbatical has forced me back into a habit I relegated for more “important” things. I won’t do that again, no matter how busy I become. I’ve missed reading and what it does. Expands. Inspires. Tugs.
Here’s what I’ve read this month. (Click title for book description.)
1. Rosie Project. Intelligent, unique, hilarious.
2. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. Raw, real, rich.
3. A Gentle Rain. Endearing, hopeful, gooey.
4. Twelve Years A Slave. Sad, hopeful, tragic. I always begin these with apprehension knowing the depth of pain I will feel. It never gets easier for me. I hope it never does.
Your turn. What do you recommend? I’m open to any genre but no heartbreaking stuff. (I need to recover from 12 years.) What books do you love?
