In My Reading Life
Last week, I finished Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge by Eleanor Herman. Then I reread part of When Prophecy Fails: A Social and Psychological Study of a Modern Group that Predicted the Destruction of the World by Leon Festinger, et al. (Why do nonfiction books need such long titles? It seems unnecessary.) Right now, I’m reading Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick. (A fiction book with a nice, short title.)
In The Rest Of My Life
Five things that made me happy last week:
- Rereading books. Sometimes I forget how much I like doing that.
- Modern medicine. I still haven’t been able to get my prescription refilled. This is teaching me how miserable life would be if medicine didn’t exist. Medicine is awesome, guys. Be grateful.
- I saw the movie Capote. I liked it. It made me want to track down a copy of In Cold Blood. I read that book several times when I was a teenager, but I don’t know what adult-me would think of it.
- National and state parks. I’m glad that I’ve spent so much of my life hanging out in these places.
- Walking. It’s literally freezing outside, but I walked a lot last week. I think I spend too much time on the computer. It messes with my mind.
Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!
