one of the things that i miss so much during the school year is reading for pleasure. after work this past week, i have had my nose in a book. multiple books, actually. i feel as if i am back to the business of being me.
i was too young when patti smith came on to the scene, so i never had any of her albums. yet, her memoir just kidsis breathtaking.
we walk to the library which is our favorite way to go. you feel the anticipation with each step and you walk faster on the way home just to get your paws on the books in your bag. our librarians do a fantastic job of editing their displays and you can just grab a winner without knowing anything about it. two nights ago, i finished one small boat: the story of a little girl, lost then found which has to be one of the most heartfelt books ever. i cannot wait to read kathy harrison's another place at the table.
on the nightstand is toastby nigel slater, jay-z's decoded, and a biography of e.e. cummings.
what books have you read lately? please let me know and i will put them on my list to read.
