    You are brave to read some of this stuff, Lisa! I feel like a wimp, but I just don’t think I’d be able to make it through the Columbine book – too soon! Know what I mean? Like the Jodi Picoult book about a school shooting, I forget the name, but I love her work and just couldn’t bring myself to read that one. That being said, I did realize that the last 3 books I read were all pretty much dealing with aging and death, and the book I’m reading now has to do with death in a way as well – what is up with me?? Anyway, I can totally recommend The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian – it’s our book club book we’re currently reading. I wanted to read it before the movie came out, and I did enjoy it a lot. Current book is Goodbye For Now, by Laurie Frankel. She’s a member of the Seattle Seven writer’s group, and I have to say I have loved all the books I’ve read from their authors and also love the philanthropic work they do with literacy here in Seattle. A couple to add to your list and I’m going to add the Ng book to mine – thanks!

      The Leisure Seeker sounds great! I just put it on hold.

      Yeah, I don’t know how I got such heavy books one right after another. A lot of times that’s when the library books comes available for me. So it’s kind of a gamble what I read next!

    Every time I read one of your book recap posts, I think “I should read more!” Then I go to the library, get books, let them sit on my bedside table for three weeks and then return them – usually late 😛

      So I have a suggestion…do you have a Kindle? I have one and I was resistant to it. I wanted REAL books. I hated the idea of technology taking over in that realm. But I got one for Christmas a few years ago and it’s GREAT. I read SO MUCH MORE now on the Kindle than I did before. Part of that is that I don’t have to wait long to get a book, I can get library books downloaded onto my Kindle so it saves time going to the library to pick up a book. Plus, don’t you take the train to work? You could read there!

    I got Little Fires Everywhere on audio and then realized with how long it was and that I’m only commuting 3 days a week, I wouldn’t be able to get it back to the library in time. There are no renewals because it’s so high on the wait list!

    So I brought it back and am now 157 on the book wait list. HA!
