To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? “Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America” by Erik Larson-not very far in so not sure how much I like it yet
What did you recently finish reading? “Prozac Nation” by Elizabeth Wurtzel-I ended up really liking this book and relating more to this woman than I started out thinking I would. I feel bad for how long she had to wait before she was able to get medicine along with her therapy that would help her.
“The Uncommon Reader” by Alan Bennett-Short read, I literally read the whole book in an hour or a little over an hour. It’s a fiction novelette about the queen accidentally discovering the love of reading and becoming a voracious reader, making everyone else in the castle aggravated by it and kind of stirring things up. It ends with an interesting twist, I must say!
What do you think you’ll read next? I think it will probably be “In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote unless they call and say the book I have on hold is in….it was due back two weeks ago by whoever had it first checked out and it’s only a 7 day book, so I don’t know what’s going on. They show it still checked out so just my luck, it will probably be never returned and I will have to wait to read the book. UGH!
Giving Thanks Day 16: Reading “Prozac Nation” gave me an insight into what life was like for someone with Depression, a lot like mine, BEFORE there was good medicine out there for it. Today, I am thankful that although I suffer from it, I am living in an age where there is more knowledge and acceptance for it, as well as better medicine available.
