I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school all day Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!
Let’s go literary this week –
This memoir is about the author’s experiences trying to live like Laura. Since the Little House on the Prairie series was my favorite as a kid I’d love to see what she found.
I just read the first Temperance Brennan novel (Deja Dead) and I can’t wait to tear through the rest of the series! Think murder mystery novel but with actual, factual forensics.
I know nothing about this book except for the fact that it is written by one of my favorite authors. Burroughs wrote his first novel while overcoming his drinking problem; and the story describing that time (found in Magical Thinking) makes me cry every time I’ve ever read it.
I will admit that I hadn’t even heard of Mindy Kaling before I picked up this month’s issue of Self. I don’t watch “The Office,” so sue me. But her short interview was so funny and sweet that I immediately decided that I have to have her book.
The memoir of a CIA agent wrongfully accused of betraying her country. Apparently I’m all about memoirs.
What great books have you read recently?
