What I Am Reading Right Now:
Eat to Live by: Joel Fuhrman, M.D. An interesting read for anyone interested in serious self-care through better eating.
A literary magazine that thoughtfully weaves interviews, short stories, poetry, photos, and readers’ words into each issue. Regardless of the monthly focal point I find myself eager to read each issue cover to cover.
What I Recently Read:
Never Can Say GoodBye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York edited by Sari Bottom
A great collection of essays on why NYC is the only place some of us can truly call home.
Just Kids by Patti Smith
I love Patti Smith. I love NYC. A beautifully written book about a time when youth, art, hopeful idealism, and love really were enough to survive in NYC.
The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch
Beautifully written. A memoir of a less than perfect life that drew me in and left me wanting more.
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir) by Jenny Lawson
I have had more than a few awkward moments on public transportation caused by hysterical laughing while reading this book. This book is for anyone who thinks her upbringing fell short of “normal” or has endured life’s ups and downs while retaining a sense of humor.
Half Empty by David Rackoff
I laughed out loud. I have been a fan of David Rackoof’s for years. I love hearing him on NPR. Why, oh why, did it take me so long to pick up one of his books? Pessimists will cheer to have someone so brilliant and witty on their side, optimists will pause and wonder if maybe they have it all wrong, and realists will debate whether or not it is time to cross that line into pessimism.
