Let's see. I'm still reading Acedia and Me by Kathleen Norris. I need to finish it, because it's due back at the library soon. This is a book that I'm going to look for at Half Price Books, because I may want to read it again in a few years.
This week I finished Nineteen Minutes by Jodie Picoult. A more depressing book I haven't read in quite some time. As I said on Monday, if high school is really like that, I'm glad we homeschooled. The book is about a Columbine-like school shooting. I'm sure we'll have a good discussion at book club, because we have a couple of retired teachers--their take on school culture should be interesting.
I also finished The Care and Feeding of Husbands by Laura Schlesinger. I think this is a very, very fine book. It tracks right along with a lot of the advice I have given over the years. I'm considering buying several copies of the book and handing them out. Especially, maybe, as wedding gifts for young brides.
After almost 30 years of marriage, it's the truest marriage help book I've ever read. It would radically tic off feminists, so I automatically like it. And she explicitly says this is advice for marriages that are hurting, but not in cases of abuse, addiction or affairs. Those things need more help than any book. If you think you need a little marriage tune up--try this one, girls. It couldn't hurt.
Next on the stack, Right Ho, Jeeves, by P. G. Wodehouse. After that, I don't know. Something off my giant pile of "to reads."
How 'bout you?
