A group of us were chatting over lunch about the books we're all currently reading and loving and I thought I'd share the list. Most of us are still reading actual books, although one of us (me) have moved to a reader. We'd love to know what you're reading and whether you're still reading physical books or are using a reader of some sort (Kindle, iPad, etc)...
Herewith, our current reading list:
RACHEL IS READING: How We Decide by Jonah Lehrer
Rachel says: "This is an extremely fascinating book for those who like non-fiction. It's along the lines of Malcolm Gladwell's Blink, and gives you profound insight into the inner workings of your own mind. I'm learning so much about myself by reading this book, and I can't put it down! It will surprise you to learn the motivation and unconscious reasoning behind decision making."
ELIZABETH IS READING: Enduring Love by Ian McEwan
Elizabeth says: "If the balloon boy incident intrigued you, then you'll probably like the book I started reading this morning: "Enduring Love" by Ian McEwan. The story centers around a tragic accident in which a young boy gets trapped in a balloon- but without all the creepy publicity stunt aspects of the real life balloon boy fiasco. I've only gotten through the first chapter, but I'm hooked!"
NINA IS READING: Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl
Nina says: "I am reading Tender at the Bone, written by Ruth Reichl, the editor-in-chief of the now defunct Gourmet magazine. It's a memoir focused on her childhood and teenage years, and the different relationships she had with her family and friends, and of course, food. It's not written in a way that is food-centric though, and it had a great narrative quality- very comforting and entertaining at the same time- so I would recommend it to anyone!"
MOLLY (moi) IS READING: My Life in France by Julia Child
It's like candy...I can't believe it took me this long to read this book. I gave it to my mother last Christmas when the whole Julie & Julia craze was happening and of course she loved it. Julia Child's hilarious exclamations are exactly like her "character" on television and her (incredibly naive) portrayal of the political landscape of the 1950's, along-side the story of how MTAOFC came to be make for a delicious read.
