Recently things have been... not so great. Arnold and I have deemd the time period between March 15 and April 15 as the "deluge of bad news". Sadly I'm not actually being that over-dramatic when I tell you that. I try to be careful about what I share here in this public space so today I'm not going to be talking about problems but rather, enjoyable coping mechanisms. My mechanism of choice lately has been to stop doing anything except, work, child, eat and books. Books, books, BOOOKS! I cannot get enough books. My nerdy junior high reader stuff has burst forth from me. I no longer cook(sorry noodles :() or surf the web. I only read books! All of this is to say, that I have many, many recommendations for your summer reading list and if I can tear myself out of "Kosher Chinese" (my latest paperback escape route) I will tell you all about them... soon.
