What I'm reading now.

It's snowing -  a big event here in NC.  It is really piling up and the perfect opportunity to pull out a book.  Today I'm reading "Theft By Finding" by David Sedaris.  As is usually the case with Sedaris, it's a laugh out loud book, with plenty of serious stuff tucked in

You can buy it here, or by clicking on the book photo.

 

I love David Sedaris and his kind of humor.  It's dry, sad, honest and hilarious--a quirky combination that's very human.  I can't take his books to waiting rooms because they make me laugh too hard.

Here's an update as I finished the book - this one isn't as consistently funny as some of his others.  It's still a good read and often very funny, but it's more of an interesting story of what he was doing and going through during 1977-2002.

The link is because I'm an Amazon affiliate.  That means if you buy something through the link, I get a small payment that doesn't affect your price at all.  I appreciate your use of links I post.

Whenever you have the chance, grab a book that makes you laugh.

What I'm reading now.

 

I picked up "My Life On The Road" by Gloria Steinem in the airport bookstore prior to a long flight and LOVED it.  Gloria, now 82, has played an important role in modern American history. Her book details many of the places she's travelled to, the people she met and the issues she worked on.  I hope Gloria will continue to provide leadership that gives voice to people who need it.

This is a must-read.  You'll be entertained and educated!

What I'm Reading Now.

Kitchens Of The Great Midwest by J Ryan Stradal

I was looking for something light, but still well written; an end-of-the-day book that would help me power down.  I visited Page 158 Books in Wake Forest.  This independent bookstore on S. White Street Street is a gem..  If you live locally, support this store!

The book almost reads like a collection of short stories.  The characters are connected, but you don't always know that right away.  I was sorry to see it end.

Off to the next!
