Well, I feel accomplished. I went to the Princeton Public Library today, picked up my card, and gathered a few books to read. It's probably better for my brain than watching episodes of Mad Men and The Sing-Off. I haven't read fiction in a long time so notice most of these books are non-fiction. Seriously, I'm still on the fifth chapter of the first Harry Potter. I'm getting nowhere with fiction.
I picked up three books by Henri Nouwen. My friend Lauren posted a quote by him on her blog recently, and my old roommate Courtney was always putting his words in places around our room. Plus, they are small reads.
I'm really excited to read N.T. Wright's latest book After You Believe. He's my favorite, plain and simple. And I picked up one fiction book Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. It looked interesting. I've seen it before at bookstores. No one suggested it. I have no idea what it is about so anyone who does please share.
For those who haven't graduated or live in an academic community, college makes it easy to find good reads. Now, I'm clueless, and I seriously miss my Honors College book discussions. How am I suppose to understand anything without Dr. Bressler or Dr. Bounds?
So what are you reading right now? Fiction? Non-fiction? All recommendations are appreciated (seriously).
p.s. Yes, Courtney, I expect you to comment on this because you know everything about books... you're like Matilda.
