Reading


All I've been reading lately are books about pregnancy - what's going on in my body, how to take care of my body, what to eat, what the baby looks like. On Saturday I started reading something else. I picked up Eat, Pray, Love a month ago at our church rummage sale. Our minister loves it, so I thought it was worth a try. I've been reading it nonstop since Saturday. I'm not ever sure I like it. I find the woman weak and needy and self-indulgent, and someone I probably wouldn't like in real life. But I can't stop reading it because it's not about pregnancy. It's completely unrelated. It's an easy read and won't take me long to finish. Then I'll get back to reading about pregnancy, but I'm welcoming the break now.

I started reading that book - and I honestly couldn't get into it. I saw it on Oprah, she raved about it.. and I was like. eh.

I started going to the library and the gay bookstore just to get away from pregnancy books. I know exactly what you are talking about. I loooovvveee Augusten Burroughs - he wrote Running With Scissors.. I am reading "A Wolf at the Table" at the moment.

Yeah, I read Running with Scissors. It was weird. I haven't read anything else he's done though.

Interesting coincidence -- I started to listen to this book on CD from last Friday. Will probably finish it this weekend. (Daifeng)
