Oh, and also...

I need a new book....

I am taking recommendations.

Just don't recommend Devil in the White City. Because I don't like it.

----------------

I'm a little bored.

"A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius"

yes, this guy named his memoir that. It's great.

My ex-girlfriend Cynthia Langston wrote a hilarious "chick lit" novel called Bicoastal Babe. The character Steve in the first chapter is loosely based on me. It is a very funny, very quick summer read.

"Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books," by Azar Nafisi. Not only did I enjoy reading about Iran, which we here in the United States really don't understand, but it mentioned other books that I put on my "to read" list.

Blind Fall by Christopher Rice. Or anything by Christopher Rice for that matter. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. Random Family by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc. There are a bunch of suggestions for ya. I like to read. Obviously.

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Someone gave it to me for Christmas and I decided to start reading it without even reading the back cover to see what it was about. I got totally sucked into it and was even ecstatic to be stuck on a stopped train for an hour and half on the way to work because I had that book with me. Her writing is incredibly vivid.

However, if I'd read a plot summary first, it would probably still be sitting in some pile in my house collecting dust. Just a suggestion if you decide to pick it up.

This suggestion depends on your fiction or non-fiction side...which is like asking Grace, girls or boys...or boi's. Don't presume you'll know because you won't. She's unpredicible in this area. This is what I know about Grace. She will leave a non-fiction book you gave her (after wine) on an airplane even if she's been planning to read it forever. The most thoughtful, heartfelt gift she'll give you is her only copy of a fiction, musical that she LOVES and is one of her favorites. If she really loves you, she'll sing the songs that go with the book -- this will be spontaneous with wine...

The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon. Just finished it...at some points the writing was so good it made me weepy. Enjoy!

"Are you there vodka? It's me, Chelsea."

Looks hilarious.

Rachel said...

Yes, Are You There Vodka is hilarious, though not as great as My Horizontal Life.

I think you would like Tete a Tete, the biography of Jean Paul Sarte and Simone de Beauvoir's relationship. Hot, hot, hot!!!! Lots of fucking and seduction and Paris and more fucking. And some history. Then more hot sex. Really.

I miss you Grace!

What about Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore"? I am reading it now and loving it. Very unusual and entertaining.

Please share what you finally decide upon!

vcugirl said...

Ok. I want to give you some ideas on things to rant/blog about.

1. What you think a day in the life of the person who drives the car witht he plates that say "LV DISNY" entails. I can't believe I saw that plate.

2. Soundtrack of your life.

Jane Know said...

I'm reading "Possible Side Effects" by Augusten Burroughs. It involves lots of tales about drinking, a woman taking out her tampon and throwing it at some jerks, a crazy mom, and nicotine gum... what more can you ask for?!

davidallenjd said...

Holy shit, Jane Know ... that sounds like Grace's real life!!! Grace!!! Don't read "Possible Side Effects."

But Grace? A new blog entry would be awesome. Your public awaits your delighting us with a new blog entry. You've "slipped" from you decision to write every single day.
