After a glance at my nightstand, some might think I have a problem. Those people would probably be correct. I cannot get enough books! I keep my night stand stocked, so in the [un]fortunate event that I finish a book, I can simply grab a new one and dive right in.
Do you know those people who stock their basements with canned goods and water bottles in preparation for the apocalypse? I really hope those people will share their provisions in exchange for some good literature.
I have read several books so far this year, and I would like to share a few of my personal favorites:
1. We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates
2. Pastrix by Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber
3. The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw
4. Bossypants by Tina Fey
5. Tattoos on the Heart by Gregory Boyle
As I wrote that list, I realized four out of five of those are nonfiction. Two years ago that would not have been the case, but I have been trying to read a wider variety of literature.
If you ever want to talk books, I am your gal. Along with writing and grammar, reading is one of my favorite topics and pastimes.
From my book pile to yours,
The Displaced City Girl
